Polish decorative paper cut-outs or in the Polish language, called Wycinanki, belong to the most colourful and unique in the world of paper cutting traditions. They are cut by hand, without drawing the designs first and traditionally cut using large sheep-sheering scissors but now by regular scissors or hand clippers.

- Take home your own paper cut-out Wycinanki artwork.
- Watch a short presentation, learning about an old craft from eastern Europe.
- The designs in class are based on the Lowicz and Kurpie regions of Poland.

This craft workshop is also available throughout the year, a date and time to suit you. Look out for the Wycinanki family programme for parents and children in the school holidays, ideal for birthday parties too! Gather your group together and make a booking.
