Get in touch with your Polish heritage or learn more about this interesting Polish tradition of Egg-scratching!
Skrobanki is a traditional Polish technique for scratching designs into eggs which have been dyed with onion skins.
In this class, we will walk through the entire process, from dyeing the eggs, to decorating them with unique designs, using the scratching technique to decorate the eggs with an exacto knife.
Each participant will have the chance to create two of their own Easter eggs! No previous art experience required.
This class will be taught by Waxwing artist, Kasia Drake-Hames.
