Learn the art of making pysanky – Ukrainian decorated eggs. Using beeswax and dyes applied in layers, students will create amazing, beautiful eggs that will please anyone lucky enough to receive the egg as a gift. In addition, Laurelie will instruct on making 1-dye, hanging Christmas ornament eggs.
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 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.
This class is for students 12 years and older.
