Pysanky Ukrainian Eggs

Our first Pysanky workshop was in March. It was  very successful with everyone leaving with their  beautifully finished egg, and the know-how to design and make more. Our expert presenter, Jennifer Santa Maria, will return on May 5 for more popular and rewarding egg designing. She is one of the few Pysanky instructors in the State of New Jersey and has held many workshops at art centers and museums along the US East Coast.

Traditional Ukrainian eggs or ‘Pysanky’ are decorated using beeswax and dyes that are applied in layers. Participants will learn techniques, designs, and the historical significance of this process and go home with a beautiful egg. 

No experience is necessary and ages 16 through adult are welcome to register. Participants will be provided with eggs and decorating materials.

Please bring an apron or old shirt and an egg carton to take home your egg.

The price for the two and a half hour workshop is $40.

Our Mission         

We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to foster and promote the artistic and cultural vitality of Sussex County. We do this by: 

  • Providing an art gallery where our members and other artists can display and sell their art
  • Arranging art exhibits in other local galleries and businesses 
  • Supporting 21 Sussex County organizations with programs in visual arts, history, music, theater and social welfare by allocating and administering grant funding provided by the State of New Jersey.

For more information about SCAHC and how our support affects the people of Sussex County see About SCAHC




Donate buttonFacebook linkWe retain a small part of the funds received from the State of New Jersey to cover the administrative cost of the art and history grant programs. This is nowhere near enough to pay for all the services we provide in Sussex County. For these we must rely on the generosity of our members and supporters. Please help! Any contribution is important and appreciated. No amount is too small. Thank you.
