Attendees will get a hands-one experience as they learn how to properly use a “kistka” or stylus. Learning the correct order of which the dyes must be used, participants will also discover how to make various symbolic designs. All attendees will create a colorful egg masterpiece to take home. All supplies will be provided. Open to ages 8 and up. Pre-registration required! Participants may sign-up for either workshop. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required; call 973-377-2982 x14.
