PAJAKI CHANDELIER ART
Wednesday, March 15, 3 – 5pm
Join us to learn this traditional polish folk art! Pająki (literally translated as spiders) are made of straw, and very often decorated with colorful yarn and paper ornaments. They come in various shapes and types. Traditionally they adorned interiors of cottages, hanging down from the beams. They were prepared for various important celebrations such as Christmas (originally winter solstice) or Easter (spring equinox). They were meant to disperse bad luck and ward off evil spirits, working a bit similar to dream catchers. Pająki used to be prepared each year and burned during autumn festivals.
