easter-eggs-6Join us Friday April 11 or Saturday April 12, 2014 for a Slovakian Easter egg decorating class taught by Pam Robinson. Interested in her ethnic heritage, Pam learned this egg decorating method as a teenager, which uses a wax-resist technique and a homemade straight pin ‘tool’. You will learn how to blow out (empty) the contents of a raw egg and create two Easter eggs with beautiful designs based on the use of dots and teardrops.

Pam and her sisters grew up helping their mother make Slovakian holiday favorites such as potato pierogies (especially for the meatless Lenten Friday night meals) and potica (a coffee cake bread with either poppy seed, walnut, or apricot filling). You will have the opportunity to taste these ethnic treats as part of the Slovakian Easter Egg Decorating class. Slovak-Pierogipotica bread 2

There are two options for this class: Friday April 11 from 6 – 9 pm, or Saturday April 12 from 9 am to noon.  $15 per person includes all materials.  These two sessions are identical.  Sign up for one only (unless you just want to repeat the process to learn it better). Call 218-385-3339 to register.
