Friday Night Flicks: Pająki / Chandeliers

This week’s flick features the paper and straw works of Karolina Merska. Merska creates pająki, traditional Polish decorations used for celebratory decorations.

 

 

Here’s a picture of Merska’s giant pająk installed during the London Design Festival 2016.

The video may have shown you enough of the process for you to undertake your own pająk this weekend. If you would like more instructions, you will find some here.

    This is wonderful to me! I have never seen these before. Half my family is Polish but we know just a few bits of that heritage.
