What we're about

The purpose of this group is to help you meet people who share your interest in contemporary Poland, Polish art & culture, Polish history, traditions and heritage, Polish cuisine or the Polish language.

This group's "hidden agenda" is to promote local Polish events and activities, organized by this group's leadership or by other community leaders. The not-so-hidden agenda is to simply have fun!

Wycinanki: the Art of Polish Paper Cutting (Virtual Workshop)


A colorful look at the history, tradition and process of creating Wycinanki which is the art of Polish Paper Cutting!

Join Eagle-Orzeł Educational and Cultural Exchange, Inc for a colorful afternoon dedicated to learning the art of Wycinanki!

Wycinanki (pronounced Veee-chee-non-key) is the art of cutting paper to look like a variety of things such as floral bouquets, scenes of everyday life in the country, to roosters who guard your home. Wycinanki were originally made by Polish peasants to decorate their cottages' freshly whitewashed walls. Today they can brighten up your home or make a colorful gift for family and friends. The virtual workshop will cover the history, tradition, and process of creating your own floral Wycinanki design and by the end of the workshop you will create your own piece of art!

The virtual workshop will be led by Cecilia Kocinski-Mulder. Cecilia enjoys dabbling in various crafts and is always working on some project or another. She taught herself how to create various types of Wycinanki during a Washington, D.C. snowstorm a little over 10 years ago and has been creating ever since. Cecilia creates both traditional and modern designs and is always always excited to try new designs and loves gifting them to family and friends who inspire her! Cecilia also proudly serves as the Board Secretary for Eagle-Orzel Educational and Cultural Exchange, Inc.

This workshop is designed for various skill levels and is recommended for crafters who are 10 years of age or older. The workshop will run about 75 minutes and Cecilia will stay on afterwards for those who are interested or have questions.

All proceeds from the workshop go to support the initiatives of Eagle-Orzeł Educational and Cultural Exchange, Inc.
