About

Association for the Promotion of Old Crafts and Culture “WICI” [aka WICI Association] is a non-profit association based in Poland. The main goal of “WICI” is to inform, educate and promote ​​handicrafts in society. We work to restore the value of craftsmanship and the use of crafts in modern industry, design, art and as a leisure time activity.

“WICI” Association was established in 2016 by a group of activists, educators, artists, researchers, craftsmen and craftswomen. What bonded us was the shared understanding of the value of old crafting techniques and the unique relationship between the maker and the object. Meet our team.

Our aim is to rediscover the past anew: to make the public aware of the time, skills and knowledge necessary to make a handmade product – to see and understand the differences between mass produced, and hand crafted and custom-made items. If crafts and handicrafts are appreciated on the market, the work of artisans becomes economically profitable as a full-fledged and sustainable source of income. Read our Education Strategy.
