Paper Craft


Polish Wycinanki, (paper cut outs), became a popular folk craft in the mid-1800s.

It originated with shepherds cutting designs out of tree bark and leather.

Colourful wycinanki were pasted on furniture or roof beams as decoration, hung in windows, and given as gifts.

Wycinanki vary by region. For example, wycinanki created in the Kurpie region are typically all one colour, while wycinanki from the Łowicz region are multicoloured.

Techniques include cutting, clipping, punching, tearing, and carving of paper, as well as nalepianki in which multiple layers are glued together.

Come along and join artist Konrad Pawlaszek and discover the art of this beautiful craft.
