Workshops & Demos

Have you ever wanted to make a pysanka (Easter egg)? Or learn how to make pyrohy? Here's your chance!

The UFest Workshops and Demonstrations tent will feature a variety of hands-on activities, for all ages to participate in!

NOTE: Due to a limited number of spots, you will need to pre-register for workshops. This can only be done on-site either the day before or the morning of.

Each workshop costs 10$ per person, except the "10 Ways to Tie a Khustka" workshop, which costs 20$ because it will include a khustka.

There is limited space for each workshop. Festival goers can reserve a spot ahead of time by signing up and paying for their workshop at the Workshops and Demos tent during the festival. Cash only. Exact change appreciated.
