Ukrainian Culture: Pysanky Workshop

Learn the ancient Ukrainian art of pysanka in hands-on classes featuring traditional techniques and designs from the Ukrainian Gift Shop! Learn about the history and symbolism of this expressive art form and fill your Easter basket with beautiful pysanky!
Pysanky – are egg shells, on which designs are “written” in hot wax with a special stylus called a pysachok (писачок) or a kistka (кістка) which has a small funnel attached to hold a small amount of liquid wax. The word ‘pysanky’ comes from the Ukrainian verb pysaty, which means “to write.”
There is a cap of 20 students for this workshop, so sign up fast. Because we need to order the kits ahead of time, all seats must be pre-registered and paid for before the February 23rd, no refunds will be issued after this date.
