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.
