Celebrate the coming of spring while taking the art of easter egg dyeing to the next level!
The craft of decorating eggs using a batik, or wax-resist, method of dying to create detailed patterns has been around for hundreds of years and in many different cultures, including the Ukaranian pysanky and Hungarian hímestojás.
In this unique class you’ll learn about the Hungarian tradition and then use a special copper tool to draw designs with melted beeswax on hollow eggs and then dip them into beautifully colored dyes. You’ll make up to three eggs in class to take home as artful keepsakes-- it’s a lot of fun and the results will impress!
All of the necessary supplies and tools will be provided in class, including the prepared empty eggs. The kistka tool and wax will also be yours to take home with you, and since the tradition is to give the eggs to family and friends… we see at least a dozen more decorated eggs in your future!
Unless otherwise noted, workshops are for those 16 years of age or over.
