UKRAINIAN/PYSANKY EGG DECORATING
*** New Session Added***  Saturday, April 15th, 2:30pm
Please join us at the library on Saturday, April 1st at 2:30 p.m. for a class in pysanky, or Ukrainian egg-making. Marilyn, Lynne, and Julia Heinzmann will bring all the supplies and will provide step-by-step instructions for you to make your very own beautiful (real!) egg using this traditional wax-resist method. The process is a bit messy, though, so wear old clothes and prepare to have fun!  Please call the library to register.
