Pysanky! Ukrainian Easter Egg Decorating - Saturday April 4th OR Sunday April 5th
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 dye baths. Pysanky are often very intricate and include layers of meaning, imbued with symbols of protection and goodwill.
Oksana Hawrylak and Olenka Kleban will guide you through all the steps of transforming a plain egg into a work of art. Beginners welcome. All materials will be provided (eggs, stylus, dyes, wax…) Additional materials and kits will be on sale to take home.

383 Water Street, Downtown Peterborough
