We're so pleased to welcome back the wonderful people at Folk Camp!
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.
