Participants will learn a traditional wax resist method of decorating eggs as practiced by the Ukrainian people. Using a metal stylus which is heated in an open candle flame, thin layers of beeswax are applied to the egg shell before dipping it into brilliant liquid dyes.

The cultural meaning of traditional motifs will be explained and demonstrated but the focus of the class is on technique.Read more
