Introduction to Pysanky: Pumpkin Pysanky
October 19 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT$58.50 – $65.00
Just in time for Fall! Turn an ordinary brown chicken eggshell into an adorable Jack-O-Lantern decoration. Explore the art, symbolism, and joy in writing Pysanky – Ukrainian Decorated Eggs. Students will learn the age-old method of applying hot beeswax to an emptied chicken egg using a special tool and then dipping the egg in a dye bath. These steps are repeated to create patterns and symbols. When the process is completed, the wax is melted off over a candle flame, revealing the hidden colors and designs. (Designs may vary). This pysanka, or Ukrainian Easter egg can then be displayed on a stand or hung as an ornament.
All materials, supplies, and instruction will be provided to complete one or two eggs.
