Learn the art of decorating Ukrainian Easter eggs

Tomorrow (Saturday, April 1), from noon to 5 p.m., the Ukrainian American Youth Association is hosting its annual event for decorating pysanky — Ukrainian Easter eggs. Attendees use dyes, beeswax and a stylus (all provided) to decorate the eggs with traditional Ukrainian designs. You can take what you make home with you. 

There will also be food for sale from Ukrainian East Village Restaurant. The event occurs at the Ukrainian National Home, second floor, 140 Second Ave. between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street. Details are on the above flyer. All the proceeds will go toward humanitarian aid for Ukraine.

Love it! Thank you for sharing. I participated in pysanky-decorating classes/events at the Ukrainian Museum a couple of times over the years and it's a really fun experience for the young and the old and everyone in between. Plus it's for a good cause!

Best event for egg making. Can not wait for next year. You make as many as you want. My son made a dozen eggs too.
