On Saturday, August 23, Vera Samycia will be offering a workshop where attendees will have a chance to work with their own egg and learn the art of doing traditional pysanka using the technique of wax resist dyeing. Pysanka is the ancient art of decorating eggs. Often associated with Easter, the eggs use a variety of symbols and motifs that tell important stories to those who are a part of the culture and understand the “codes” and tradition found in the eggs. This free workshop, hosted by the BHHA, will start at 1:30 p.m. in the Diary Building and last 3 hours. Space will be limited to 15 adults, so call 309 927-3899 to reserve your spot. There are 12 spots remaining. This workshop is sponsored by Company of Folk with partial programs support by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, Illinois Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
