PYSANKY DEMONSTRATION IN WISNER PARK, ELMIRA, NY
summer at Wisner Park in downtown Elmira. There are all kinds of vendors selling flowers, produce, flavored popcorn, food, plants, and information tents about different projects available to the public. Musicians from our area play on a stage at each market throughout the summer. Sometimes I demonstrate the art of making pisanki. I meet some wonderful people and love the idea of informing them about my folk art. It is a little challenging using a lighted candle outdoors, especially if the wind is blowing. Then there might be several people standing around and watching me try to light my candle.
