Egg Painting:
SACC Embraces Slovak Easter Tradition by hosting "Kraslice" Workshop

On March 10, 2024, Slovak-American Cultural Center hosted a delightful Traditional Easter Egg Painting Workshop which took place at Holy Family Church in Linden, New Jersey, where attendees unleashed their creativity and embraced the Easter spirit. The atmosphere was filled with joy and excitement as participants dived into the art of decorating Easter eggs using beeswax, a technique deeply rooted in Slovakian tradition. This art form, known as "kraslice", has been practiced for centuries in Slovakia, symbolizing the arrival of spring and the renewal of life. The intricate process required precise movements and attention to detail, showcasing the fine craftsmanship involved in this traditional art form.

Throughout the workshop, people had a blast putting their imaginative minds to work, exploring various designs and patterns to adorn their eggs. The use of beeswax added an extra layer of challenge and uniqueness to the creations, as individuals carefully crafted intricate designs, each egg becoming a masterpiece in its own right.

As the event came to a close, heartfelt thanks were extended to all attendees for their enthusiastic participation and dedication to preserving this cherished tradition. It was truly a memorable experience filled with laughter, camaraderie, and the joy of celebrating Easter in a creative and meaningful way.

Thank you to all the attendees who enthusiastically participated in the workshop and are now equipped to pass on this cherished tradition to others! A very special thank you to our incredible instructor and inspiration behind this workshop, Milada Kurucova.
