    In this class I’ll demonstrate how to make pysanky, Ukrainian decorated Easter eggs. Learning this centuries-old technique for decorating Easter eggs is easier than you might think! Pysanky are made by drawing wax lines on a raw egg using a stylus called a kistka, then dipping the egg into a dye bath after each wax application. Finally, the wax is removed for a spectacular reveal. It’s like doing batik, but on eggs instead of fabric. We’ll talk about the cultural history of this craft and the meanings behind the traditional symbols.

    If you like to draw, design, or make things, and would like a new craft skill to add to your repertoire, this is for you! At the end of this class, you’ll have one, or maybe two beautifully decorated Easter eggs. Maximum of 8 students. Ages 13+ One 4-hour sessions.

We’ll take 15-minute break midway during this 4-hour workshop, so feel free to bring a snack.
