Celebrate Polish Heritage Month by learning how to make wycinanki (paper cutouts). Kits are available at the Tech Desk, while supplies last.

Wycinanki is traditional Polish folk art. These folk paper cutouts were used in the 1800s by Polish peasants to decorate their houses.

The most well-known modern styles of Wycinanki come from two districts. One is the Kurpie cut-out. This is usually a symmetrical design, cut from a single piece of colored paper, folded a single time, with spruce trees and birds as the most popular motifs. The second style comes from the area of Lowicz. It is distinguished by the many layers of brightly colored paper used in its composition.
