Ukrainian eggs or ‘Pysanky’ are decorated using beeswax and dyes that are applied in layers. Participants will learn techniques, designs, and historical significance of this process and go home with a beautiful egg. No experience is necessary and ages 16 through adult are welcome to register. Participants will be provided with eggs and decorating materials. Please bring an apron or old shirt and an egg carton to bring your egg home in. Limited Seating. Cost $30 all materials included.

Instructor Jennifer Santa Maria's Experience: I have taught Ukrainian egg decorating and techniques in a variety of settings to a wide audience, from children to seniors. I have instructed several groups and held demonstrations at many Libraries, Art Centers and Art Museums on the East Coast including Brattleboro Art Museum in Vermont, Jerry’s Artist Outlet in Montclair NJ, Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ, a teacher’s retreat in Hampton NH, the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in Wappingers Falls, NY and the Center for Contemporary Art in Hudson Valley.
