For centuries, eggs have symbolized renewal, life, good luck, eternity and rebirth.  Inspired by traditional folk art of Eastern and Central Europe, Daniela Sipkova-Mahoney, a Czech born artist and educator has developed cultural workshops to promote and to preserve the ancient art of egg decorating.

Participants will learn how to decorate egg shell in two different styles: blue ink method and straw application. Traditional designs are drawn on the surface of a white egg with a blue ink painting using straw application.
