Event description

Description

Learn traditional techniques to decorate your own festive egg in this introductory workshop to Pysanky!

A pysanka (plural: pysanky) is an Easter Egg decorated with designs in the technique known as "wax resist". Traditional symbols, designs and patterns are applied with melted beeswax using a tool called a kistka; eggs are then dipped into successively darker dye baths. At the end of the process, the beeswax is melted off to reveal a dazzling display of colour.

Most popularly known as a Ukrainian tradition, pysanky decorating is actually common across many Eastern European countries, and the practice has been around for thousands of years in celebration of Spring and fertility.

All materials are included. Please note that we will be working with: indelible dyes, raw eggs, and a candle flame.

**In an effort to make the space comfortable for everyone, please avoid the use of perfumes and fragrances.

Bonus: on the day of the workshop, participants will get 10% off all regularly-priced merchandise in our studio-shop.
