SCRANTON — The Lackawanna Historical Society will host its popular pysanky-making workshop with Tammy Budnovitch at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, April 1 at the Catlin House. The cost for the workshop is $25 and includes all supplies.

Pysanky is a traditional Ukrainian craft, in which patterns are drawn on eggs with wax, which protects the egg when dye is applied.

Budnovitch is a member of S.S. Cyril and Methodius Ukrainian Church and has been teaching pysanky for several years. Each workshop is a two-hour beginner class, teaching the basic steps of making pysanky. All the needed supplies are provided, including kistka, beeswax, egg, egg design and additional designs to take home.

There will also be pysanky and additional supplies for sale.

Space is limited and reservations may be made by contacting the historical society at 570-344-3841 or
