BBC.  Where would you use beeswax, onion peels and egg shells?  They are all part of the ancient art of decorating Pysanky, Ukrainian Easter eggs.  It’s a skill which has been handed down from mother to daughter for centuries.  Genia Mandzij talks to Sheila McClennon about the history and symbolism of this tradition and how to decorate the eggs with beeswax and dye.  For more tune in to today's Woman's Hour programme.
