Hungarian National Day is celebrated
annually on March 15th to recognize the Revolution of 1848, which led to the independence
of the Hungarian Kingdom from the Austrian Empire.  Festivities typically include music and dance.
At Pelham Art Center, we will also include an egg decorating workshop.
Traditionally, Hungarian egg decoration is achieved using a variety of
techniques including etching, direct painting, and the most widely known folk
art method of wax resist.
