Sign up now for a special workshop
Pysanky Ukrainian Eggs
Our first Pysanky workshop was in March. It was very successful with everyone leaving with their beautifully finished egg, and the know-how to design and make more. Our expert presenter, Jennifer Santa Maria, will return on May 5 for more popular and rewarding egg designing. She is one of the few Pysanky instructors in the State of New Jersey and has held many workshops at art centers and museums along the US East Coast.
Traditional Ukrainian eggs or ‘Pysanky’ are decorated using beeswax and dyes that are applied in layers. Participants will learn techniques, designs, and the 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 take home your egg.

The price for the two and a half hour workshop is $40.

We retain a small part of the funds received from the State of New Jersey to cover the administrative cost of the art and history grant programs. This is nowhere near enough to pay for all the services we provide in Sussex County. For these we must rely on the generosity of our members and supporters. Please help! Any contribution is important and appreciated. No amount is too small. Thank you.
