About this Event

Karolina will teach you how to make different types of traditional paper pompoms - “kalinka” and “hedgehog” for your Christmas tree.

Originally from Poland and based in London, she’s a pajaki maker.

Pajaki (pah-yonk-ee) are traditional Polish chandeliers made from rye straw and paper. They symbolise health and happiness and date back to the 18th century when they were made in the countryside by women as decorations for their homes.

Pajaki were especially popular at Christmas but this is an art which is slowly dying. She is the keeper of this ancestral knowledge.

Paper and tools provided.
