Wycinanki Paper Cutting Café

Wycinanki is a traditional Polish folk art, created by cutting or layering colorful paper into intricate patterns. Popular designs include geometric patterns and scenes from rural farm life. These crafts were initially popular decorations for country homes in the mid-nineteenth century and have grown in popularity to be a universally recognized symbol of Polish culture. Folding and unfolding problems in mathematics have been evident since the 1500s and are studied as Geometric Folding Algorithms.  Join Marianna Bogucki and Teacher Prep to learn the history of the craft, the math associated with geometric folding and have some fun creating your own designs. Lunch will be served.
