These gorgeous paper chandeliers originated in Poland. They are a Polish folk craft that was used to add fun and cheer to their homes in the gloomy winter months.
I was introduced to the craft through a workshop at my local library run by the lovely Beci Orpin.
Beci walked a group of us through what supplies we’d need and how to get started. It was great working together as a group as we all shared ideas and with a few teachers amongst us, we discussed how we could simplify the activity for different age groups.
Below are a few examples that the lovely Grade 4s created during their high school Taster Day at the start of the year.
