Intro to Ukrainian Egg Decorating
Fee $25 per student
Explore the colorful world of Pysanky (Ukrainian Easter Eggs) as you learn this wax-resist technique handed down through generations of Eastern Europeans. In this three hour introductory class we will briefly cover the history, culture, and symbolism of this ancient art before beginning to work on real chicken eggs.
Students will practice drawing wax lines on an egg and layering dye colors to make their own unique creation. After removing the wax they will apply a final glassy finish to protect their design. No artistic skill or experience is necessary.
Everyone is welcome in this class but since we will be working with a candle flame, students should be 6th grade and above.
