How to make a spider that brings you luck?
premiera: 18.08.2020

Jadwiga Anioła, a folk artist and her daughter Zuzanna showed us how to make traditional decorations called spiders [pająki]. As an old folk saying goes, “Happy the home where spiders galore” [Szczęśliwy ten dom, gdzie pająki są] – this is why people used to hang them so willingly in their apartments. Today, not many people remember about this tradition, and the multicoloured decorations made of straw and crêpe paper are rarely seen under a ceiling. Jadwiga Anioła presented us step by step, how to prepare a spider, and told us about the customs related to its creation.
