Ukrainian Pysanky Egg Decorating Workshop

When: Thu., March 28, 1 p.m. 2013

The art of Pysanky or decorated Easter eggs in Ukraine dates back to ancient times. A pysanka (the word is a derivative of "to write") is made by first hollowing out the egg through a small pinhole. A Kitska, or hot wax pen, is then used to write designs on the egg in beeswax. The egg is then dipped in various dyes, alternating with more wax writing on the shell. The designs are elaborate and fun to create. For adults and children ages 10 and up. Class size limited, call or email to register

Price: Kids $10/Adults $15, Materials fee includes supplies to take home.
