On 16 and 17 March 2024 from 10:00 to 17:00, the Sorbian Cultural Centre Schleife cordially invites you to the 25th Sorbian Easter Egg Market. Almost 30 Easter egg painters from Lusatia will be on hand to decorate the delicate works of art, look forward to interesting conversations with visitors and, of course, offer their work for sale. All four Easter egg decorating techniques commonly used in Lusatia will be represented: wax batik and wax embossing techniques as well as scratching and the now rare etching technique. A small Sorbian folklore programme will provide a cultural backdrop to the market. Colourful market stalls with handicrafts, agricultural products and our regional associations will enrich the market scene. You are sure to find an Easter gift or two made from ceramics, glass, felt, wool, fabric or wood. Regional delicacies such as cooked cheese, egg pancakes, smoked fish, Easter bread, Grützwurst and Semmelwurst sausages, Schmalzstullen and crumble cake ensure satisfaction and a good mood. The Schleife Poultry Breeders' Association will be stocking the incubator with eggs three weeks before the market so that the chicks can be seen hatching just in time for the Easter egg market. If you would like to decorate your own Sorbian Easter eggs using the wax batik technique, you can try it out under expert guidance in the egg painting workshop.
