Pajaki Workshop: Traditional Polish Chandelier Making with Fate and Coincidence
Registration closes 24 hrs prior to class date. A minimum of 4 students is needed to run this class.
Sunday December 10th from 12:30pm to 3:30pm
Entry Level Class - No experience necessary, however this class does require fine motor skills. Minors must have a guardian present.
Come celebrate the change of season by making a striking chandelier and learning about the special Polish custom of Pajaki making!
Pronounced Pah-yonk-ee, this traditional craft is created by the women of Poland at times of celebration - springtime, weddings, christenings, or holidays.
We’ll learn about the history of this craft while working with metal hoops, paper straws, twine, paper flowers, pom poms, hand marbled wooden beads, and much more to create a one-of-a-kind decorative ‘chandelier’ that roughly measures 12” round x 24” long.
These are traditionally hung around holidays as a decoration for the home, but can also be hung from the ceiling year around! Choose your colors and materials to make it your own.
COVID-19 POLICY - We are asking all workshop participants to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative test result from within three days prior to the class and to accept all requests of both POST and the instructor concerning mask wearing.
