Ukrainian Egg Decorating Workshop for Adults and Kids

April 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$30 – $40

You are invited to the Wilton Historical Society on Sunday, April 2 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. to learn the colorful and venerable craft of decorating eggs in the Ukrainian style, known as pysanky. Expert egg decorator, Susan Clark, will lead this workshop for adults and children. The ancient craft uses symbols and motifs to create a jewel-like egg. Intricate designs can be created with geometric forms, or with more naturalistic, flowing patterns. Participants will be using a kistka, a pointed implement filled with beeswax and heated, to draw designs on the eggs and bathing them in colored dye. Decorate eggs in a traditional design or create your own!

The program will take place in the Abbott Barn. Family groups will be seated together. The per participant fee is $30 for members and $40 for non-members.  All materials will be provided.

Recommended for for adults and children ages 9 and up. The workshop is strictly limited to 20 participants. Register on the Wilton Historical Society website.
