Pysanky workshop returns to Lackawanna Historical Society

SCRANTON – The Lackawanna Historical Society will host its popular pysanky-making workshop with Tammy Budnovitch at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 24 at the Catlin House.

The cost for the workshop is $25. Space is limited and reservations may be made by calling 570-344-3841 or emailing lackawannahistory@gmail.com. All needed supplies will be provided, including kistka, beeswax, egg, egg design and additional designs to take home. There will also be pysanky and additional supplies for sale.

Pysanky is a traditional Ukrainian craft, in which patterns are drawn on the eggs with wax, protecting 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 basic steps.
