I love to show people how to make pysanky Ukrainian Romanian Polish natural dyed eggs using batik technique that is also used in Asia by minority H’mong and other ethnicities that somehow connect all of us together through ancient art work
I hope to show people cultural art handwork while having our guests exploring their own creativity.
