The Art of Pajaki

Are you afraid of Spiders? Pajaki, the Polish straw folk art inspires a new class given by John McRae here at Castle this July 14th. The "spiders of straw" are translated into unique chandeliers made with crepe flowers, paper cut outs and embellishments from the store. 

Original 19th century Pajaki made by women and girls from small villages can be found in museums near Warsaw. Modern day Poland has seen this craft decline but not here at Castle in the Air. This day long class will provide students with materials to create your own splendid spider.
