In anticipation of Easter, we invite you to enjoy the century-old craftsmanship of egg decoration, which transform the humble, perishable object into the vivid symbol of sacrifice and rebirth.
100 skilfully painted eggs from the Horniman Museumcollection, made by the scions of the same artisans who built the famous painted monasteries of Bukovina, north-east of Romania, are on display at Hall Place and Gardens from 28 March and Whitstable Museum from 3 April. Learn more about the art of eggs decoration, the meaning of their vivid colours and ingenious patterns, along with the festive function they perform!
