Egg Dyeing and Decorating:
where math meets art

Workshop featuring artist Ildiko Fekete

Appropriate for ages 3 and up.

Saturday, November 4 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

(in person)


Egg dyeing and decorating have a rich and symbolic history, spanning cultures and time.  In the Carpathian Basin, which encompasses Hungary, the roots of decorated eggs can be traced back 1,500 years.  But the enchanting patterns adorning Carpathian Basin eggs are no product of randomness; they are meticulously designed based on mathematical principles using rotational, reflectional, and translational symmetry.  From stars and flowers to complex geometric patterns, the fusion of mathematics and art in these eggs is nothing short of mesmerizing.  Join Hungarian artist Ildikó Fekete for a unique, two-hour workshop where mathematics seamlessly intertwines with art.  Learn about the rich history and symbolism behind decorated eggs, connecting cultures and transcending time – plus create your own magnificent decorated egg to take home!

Thanks to the support from the Tulipan Foundation.
