Wednesday, April 1

6pm – 8pm in the Gallery

Learn the ancient art of Ukrainian Easter Egg decorating– a sacred and meditative practice. Pysanky, as these eggs are known in Ukrainian, are made using the wax-resist “batik” method, in which designs are drawn or written onto the egg with beeswax, and then submerged in a series of dyebaths. Pysanky are often very intricate and include layers of meaning, imbued with symbols of protection and goodwill.

Instructors will guide you through all the steps of transforming a plain egg into a work of art.

Beginners welcome.

$35 per student includes taxes, supplies & materials

Additional materials and kits will be on sale to take home.
