Easter eggs and Sacred Harp

Once again this year, Chris Thorman and Carolyn Deacy invited Sacred Harp singers to Carolyn’s house to make traditional Ukranian Easter eggs. The process uses multiple dye baths, and masking the design out by heating beeswax. Here’s Scott putting a wax resist onto an egg that has already been dyed light blue:


My partner Carol took the photo above, and the next photo showing our completed eggs (the egg shown in the first photograph is the lowest egg on the lefthand plate):


We sang a few tunes Sacred Harp tunes while we were waiting for the final coat of varnish to dry, and in true Sacred Harp style we did share a potluck dinner. Thank you to Carolyn for hosting us, and to Chris for providing materials, tools, and patient teaching!
