Video: Dye-Hards Decorate Easter Eggs at Ukrainian Museum

Ukrainians are known to celebrate Christmas a bit late, so why not nod to Easter early? Tomorrow the Ukrainian Museum concludes its month-long exhibit of pysanka (lavishly decorated eggs) with a colorful demonstration. From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., artists will use dyes and beeswax to adorn raw eggs, to the accompaniment of a 14-minute documentary about the art of batik. The Local attended a recent workshop and got tips from one such artist, Alexandra Lebed. Warning to those who get hungry easily: Ukrainian Easter food was served.
