Pysanky: European Egg Decorating
Join us for an interactive, unique workshop on the art of Pysanky. Learn about traditional motifs, coloring, and patterns used for centuries throughout Central and Eastern Europe to create vibrantly hued and highly detailed works of art on a simple egg. Participants will learn how to apply wax using traditional tools, dye eggs in a succession of colors to create multi-colored eggs, and how to remove wax to reveal the final colors. While this craft may be more difficult for little Kinder, it’s a great activity to bond with your artistic teen or with a group of friends. The finished egg makes a lovely gift or displayed at the table for Easter Dinner.
Best for ages 12 and older
