2nd Annual Egg Decorating Workshop

On Saturday, April 1, 2017, our children participated in what has become a yearly tradition of learning the art of traditional egg decorating — a part of our Romanian culture for generations.┬á The children (as well as parents) had the opportunity to again practice this skill under the direction of Mrs. Mary Patyna.┬á Having been taught by her mother as a child, Mrs. Patyna continues to bless us by sharing her knowledge with a new generation of Romanian-Americans.

In the course of a few hours, the children learned about the designs traditionally enscribed on the eggs, learned about the tools used to accomplish the task, and then got some hands-on experience tracing and dying their own eggs.  The activity was a lot of fun and it was evident that the kids took pride in their work.

Thank you to all the children who participated, to the parents who assisted, and especially to Mrs. Mary Patyna and her assistant instructor, Ms. Mary K. Stanesa, for their continued kindness and patience in sharing their talents with us!
