Pajaki- Paper Chandelier Class
Saturday, March 17th 10:30 - 5:00PM
Instructor: Mia Semingson
The decorative paper chandeliers that hang in the store symbolize good wishes for health and happiness. Called Pajaki, they originated in an area of Poland famous for its riotously colorful paper crafts. Contemporary versions of this charming folk art are simple and fun to make. Mia Semingson, co-owner of Two Hands Paperie and a great lover of Pajaki, will show you how to build the chandelier’s airy, web-like frame from wooden hoops, cotton twine, small colorful balls, and specialty paper straws. The really fun part, and most of the class, will be spent decorating the frame with flowers, pompoms, decorative shapes, and just about anything you can imagine. As part of the class, you’ll learn how simple it is to make crepe paper tassels and beautiful flowers from scraps of paper. Anything goes!
Please bring the following optional materials:
- shaped paper punches (no larger than 1")
- favorite decorative papers
- sack lunch and water bottle (30 minute lunch break)
Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
