  • Sat., Mar 19, 12pm:   Pysanky Workshop at the Catlin House. Looking for an Easter keepsake? This spring, we’re hosting a Pysanky-making workshop! Pysanky is a traditional Ukranian craft in which patterns are drawn on the eggs with wax, which protects the egg when dye is applied. The workshop will be hosted by Tammy Budnovitch, a member of S.S. Cyril & Methodius who has been teaching pysanky for several years.
    The workshop will be approximately two hours. There is a $20 fee for the workshop, which will include all supplies needed to make a pysanky egg including kistka, beeswax, egg, egg design, and additional designs to take home.
