The Craft of Decorating Ukrainian Easter Eggs

By Susan Chase, The Andover Hub

A four-week Ukrainian Easter Egg-decorating workshop series will be offered at The Andover Hub beginning on Monday, March 5, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. and continuing for three subsequent Mondays. The workshop is free, with a small fee charged for materials; donations toward The Hub are always welcome.  Andover resident Nadja Hebert will lead the series.

Ukrainian Easter eggs, or Pysankas, are a centuries-old folk art in which beeswax is used to draw decorative designs and traditional symbols on blown-out eggshells which are then dyed.  Once decorated, the eggs can be saved and used as holiday decorations year after year.

Pre-registration is required for the workshop series in order to have enough materials available.  To register, please contact Gisela Darling at 735-5681 or, or Nadja Hebert at 735-4084 or

The Andover Hub is located at 157 Main Street, next door to Pizza Chef in downtown Andover.  For more information about The Hub and to be added to the ongoing email list, contact
