Ukrainian (Pysanka) Egg Decorating Messalonskee W19


with Lesia Sochor

Calendar Apr 3, 2019 at 5:30 pm, runs for 1 week

The Pysanka, a decorated egg, was common among Slavic peoples as far back as 5,000 B.C. and was an important spring ritual. When decorating eggs in the Ukrainian style, designs are drawn on the egg with melted beeswax, which flows from a tool called a Kystka. The eggs are then dipped in a series of dyes and the final pattern is revealed when the wax is removed. Please bring reading glasses, if you use them. A $25 materials fee if payable to the instructor at the start of class. Limit 15 students. Storm date of Apr. 10.
