It is time to learn the art of making Pysanky – Ukrainian decorated eggs! Using beeswax and dyes applied in layers, students will create amazing, beautiful eggs, perfect for special gifts or ornaments. Just think how happy your friends and family will be to receive this handmade 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 egg decorating as she guides students through the process of waxing and creating Ukrainian eggs.
