Most of the handicrafts presented at the museum are perhaps not as popular nowadays as they were in the past but they are by no means dead. If you visit the museum on a summer weekend you will be able to watch the artists at work. We very much enjoyed a demonstration of making paper flowers, hand and machine embroidery and making paper cut-outs, and, above all, talking to the artists. You can actually try your hand at the skills like the two girls in the pictures. I wish we had had more time, then I'd definitely have liked to learn making the cut-outs but mine would never have matched the ones made by the artist anyway. They were just superb!
The artists change so that you can also watch bead-embroidery, decorating Easter eggs, making folk dolls, pottery making or wood-carving (I would have loved to see this!).

Demonstrations are available on most Saturdays and Sundays between mid- June and end of August from 12.00 to 18.00. Admission is included in the ticket for the open-air exhibition. Fee for the lesson - 4 PLN per person + the cost of the materials
If you visit Lowicz on a weekday you still have the chance to see such a demonstration at the Open-air Museum in Maurzyce nr Lowicz. Daily from mid-April till mid-August.
