Easter eggs workshop set this weekend [UPDATED]

Published 9:33am Thursday, April 10, 2014 Updated 11:34am Thursday, April 10, 2014

A Slovakian Easter egg decorating class will be offered from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Cultural Center in New York Mills.

The class will be taught by Pam Robinson.

Interested in her ethnic heritage, Pam learned this egg decorating method as a teenager, which uses a wax-resist technique and a homemade straight pin “tool.” You will learn how to blow out (empty) the contents of a raw egg and create two Easter eggs with beautiful designs based on the use of dots and teardrops.

Cost is $15 per person and includes all materials.  These two sessions are identical.  Sign up for one only. Call 218-385-3339 to register.
