In this special one-off Easter Making Circle you will get into the spirit by creating your own unique decorative eggs using European traditions that originated in pagan times. Nina will guide you through a range of techniques she learned from her mother Ingrid, with a focus on Sorbian technique, a Slavonic minority in Saxony, Germany.
You will be introduced to a special hot wax technique that has been used for many centuries, learn about different patterns and designs and discover the tools to do this at home. Possibly creating a new easter tradition for your own family!
