      PYSANKY 2 - UKRAINIAN EGG PAINTING

      Instructor: Bozena Hrycyna and instructors from Folk Camp Canada,  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 dye baths. Pysanky are often very intricate and include layers of meaning, imbued with symbols of protection and goodwill. In this workshop you'll learn how to transform a plain egg into a pysanka using aniline dyes, chicken eggs, beeswax, and wooden stylus tools. Minimum age 8+.
