with Jennifer Santa Maria
2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Pysanky is a folk tradition that is both art and prayer, typically made in Ukraine, Poland, and Russia and practiced as an Easter ritual. The method is similar to batik – patterns are drawn on the egg with hot beeswax, protecting the covered areas from the dye that is applied. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Finally, the wax is removed to reveal the colors that were covered up at each stage.
Enjoy a tutorial on the history and traditions surrounding Pysanky, how to make your own egg, and an independent practice session.
A great deal of patience and concentration is required to complete a single egg, but it is very rewarding to reveal your hard work when the wax is taken off. You will leave with a beautiful egg at the end of the session.
Instructor, Jennifer Santa Maria, will provide a variety of eggs, many hard-to-find traditional and non- traditional colored dyes, and tools. All skill levels and ages can create an original pysanka. Please bring a container or old egg carton.
