Margučiai: Lithuanian Egg Decorating

  • deWolfe Leather Goods 250 Newbury Street Boston MA 02116 (map)

Come learn the wax pattern technique of Lithuanian egg decorating! Lithuanian Easter eggs are called margučiai. Though associated with Easter, the roots of margučiai are pagan. Margučiai are given to loved ones as good luck charms for the coming planting season. Join us in making some unique & delicate gifts/good luck charms for yourself and others while having fun!

For the wax pattern technique, we will use "blown-out" white eggs so that your artwork can be preserved. I will supply white eggs and will teach you how to extract the insides without breaking the shell.

*Please bring shirt or clothing you are not concerned about staining, and good spirit!
