Christmas Pajaki workshop with Karolina Merska

Hot Trend 2017 by Elle Decoration UK and Elle Decor Italia







2 December, 10am - 6pm
Hackney Wick, London

Pajaki (pah-yonk-ee) are traditional Polish chandeliers made from rye straw and paper. Made by country women as decorations for their homes especially for Christmas. They were a symbol of harvest and happiness in New Year.

Suspended from a ceiling in a main room, amongst colourful paper cut-outs, paintings and paper flowers they became a popular decoration in polish village houses. Today the tradition is practised less and less. Karolina keeps pajaki tradition alive.

Join Karolina’s workshop in her studio to make a beautiful and colourful Pajaki just in time for Christmas. Be quick, it is selling fast!
