Join us in practicing this spring tradition of the pysanka. This Ukrainian folk design uses the batik method of wax and dyes to create beautiful geometric forms, all on chicken eggs, which represent the end of winter and birth of the new year.
“The Hutsul people of the Carpathian Mountains believe that the fate of the world depends on the pysanka. As long as the egg decorating custom continues, the world will exist. If this custom is abandoned, evil in the form of a serpent will overrun the world.” -Folk Customs of Our People (Звичаї Нашого Народу)
We will learn about techniques, symbology, history, and whatever else peaks your curiosity.
All supplies included and you get to take your pysanka home. If you already have a kistka (stylus) feel free to bring it along. To get the most out of the experience, event attendees are encouraged to reserve their spot with a $10 ticket online to ensure their space is saved for them. Drop ins are also welcome ($15)!
Facilitators are Tiny Gallery Projects & Anastasia Fyk. Any questions email [email protected]
