The Art of Egg Rolling

One of our favourite Easter traditions is painting hard boiled eggs to race down the fforest lodge hill, and we have seen some great egg art at fforest over the years...but we are always looking for new inspiration for Easter guests' blank egg canvases. This short documentary has definitely caught our attention...  

'The Easter tradition of dyeing eggs is practised by people all over the world, but in Ciocanesti, a small village in Romania's northern region of Bukovina, this tradition has evolved into an art form. Exquisitely hand painted with intricate traditional designs, each of these eggs takes hours to create and is among the things the people here are most proud of.' 

...and have a look at a few other fun ideas we've found. They may be a bit less fiddly than traditional Romanian techniques but look equally as impressive!
