Just in time for the Easter season, learn the art of making pysanky – Ukrainian Easter Eggs. Using beeswax and dyes applied in layers, students will create amazing, beautiful eggs that will please the Easter Bunny or anyone lucky enough to receive the egg as a gift.
The term ‘pysanky’ is of Eastern European-Slavic heritage, from the words ‘pysaty’ – to write and ‘kraska’ – color. Pysanky suggests ‘things written upon with color’, which will become clear as students learn the dyeing technique.
Our instructor Laurelei will share some of the history and traditions of Ukrainian Easter and egg decorating as she guides students through the process of waxing and creating Ukrainian eggs. This class is appropriate for students aged 12 and above.
Each student younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult. To register as an adult-child team, register as the adult and list the child’s name and age under ‘Order Notes’. Adults with no children, or those who wish to work separately, are also welcome and encouraged to enroll in the class.
Students to bring: apron, eye glasses if needed
