Natural Rye Straw
Natural rye straw is a material used in many art forms found throughout the world. We use natural rye straw to create the traditional Polish folk craft known as pajaki (pronounced "pah-YAH-kee”). These chandeliers or mobiles made from paper and straw are full of fun and whimsy. The literal translation of pajak is "spider" and they symbolize good health and prosperity.
Use these rye straws to create a one-of-a-kind piece that's full of fun and whimsy!
This is one of the materials used in the Make Paper Pajaki Chandeliers class we recorded for Creativebug.
