Event Category:

Learn the meditative art of making beautiful Ukrainian pysanky eggs as holiday ornaments. First generation Ukrainian-American Andrea Kulish learned pysanky from her mother and now shares her culture along with the traditional folk art symbols, patterns and designs through her artistry and teaching. Pysanky are made with an age-old method of batik – wax-resist – dyeing. Designs are made with beeswax, which is melted in the flame of a candle, and applied to the egg using a tool called a kistka. The eggs are dipped into successively darker dyes until the beeswax is melted off to reveal intricate, colorful and personally meaningful designs. Bring this distinctive way of making into your holiday traditions!
