Pysanka Workshop

March 23 at12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$10 – $15

Join us in practicing this spring tradition of the pysanka. This Ukrainian folk design uses the batik method of wax and dyes to create beautiful geometric forms, all on chicken eggs, which represent the end of winter and birth of the new year.

“The Hutsul people of the Carpathian Mountains believe that the fate of the world depends on the pysanka. As long as the egg decorating custom continues, the world will exist. If this custom is abandoned, evil in the form of a serpent will overrun the world.” -Folk Customs of Our People (Звичаї Нашого Народу)

We will learn about techniques, symbology, history, and whatever else peaks your curiosity.

It’s $10 if you pre-register, or $15 the day of the workshop.
This covers all supplies and you get to take your pysanka home.

Come early to guarantee your spot. If you already have a kistka (stylus), bring it so more people can participate.

Beginners and kids 6+ welcome!
