Special 2016 Easter Workshops!
Ukrainian Pysanky Egg Ornaments
Pysanky are Ukrainian style whole eggs decorated using a wax-resist (batik) method. The historically symbolic designs are written with pure beeswax between baths of special dyes.
The process is simple, but the outcome is fantastic!
This captivating work-playshop will teach you the basics of using the Ukrainian (eastern European) batik process to decorate your own beautiful eggs which eventually are blown out to become stunning ornaments for yourself and others.
Each participant will learn history and fun facts of this fascinating craft and decorate two whole chicken eggs using traditional designs and traditional tools.
Participants will have the option to either take their whole eggs home with them, or leave them with the instructor (for two days) to be varnished, blown out and strung with a gold finding.
Each participant will receive 2 large, cleaned chicken eggs; a take-home kit consisting of: a traditional kistka (medium), a block of pure beeswax, a set of six dyes; and, full instructions with designs to make at home. All other materials will be supplied by the teacher.
The requires about four hours of dedicated time. Give yourself the gift of quiet, meditative playtime to focus in a fabulous, engaging process. At the end of the session, each person will have two wholly unique pieces of art.
