Pysanka Workshop | Ukrainian Eggs

April 10 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Learn the traditional art of Pysanka, Ukrainian Eggs, with Heidi Hermanski. In this workshop students will use layers of beeswax and colourful dyes to create intricately patterned eggs in traditional Ukrainian folk designs.

The Hutsuls; Ukrainians who live in the Carpathian Mountains, believe that the fate of the world depends upon the pysanka. As long as the egg decorating custom continues, the world will exist. If this custom is abandoned, evil -in the shape of a horrible serpent who is forever chained to a cliff– will overrun the world. Each year the serpent checks how many pysanky have been created. If the number of pysanky has increased, the chains are tightened and good triumphs over evil for yet another year.
This four hour class will guide you through the wax-resist technique of dying eggs, similar to batik work done on fabric.
