Learn the ancient art of Ukrainian Easter Egg decorating-- a sacred and meditative practice. Pysanky, as these eggs are known in Ukrainian, are made using the wax-resist "batik" method, in which designs are drawn or written onto the egg with beeswax, and then submerged in a series of dyebaths. Pysanky are often very intricate and include layers of meaning, imbued with symbols of protection and goodwill.

Instructors will guide you through all the steps of transforming a plain egg into a work of art. 

All materials will be provided (eggs, stylus, dyes, wax…) 

Additional materials and kits will be on sale to take home.

This year, 100% of the class fee will be donated to the Canada Ukraine Foundation to support ongoing humanitarian efforts in Ukraine.
