Ukrainian Pysanky Workshop & Fundraiser!
Pysanky (Ukrainian Easter eggs) have become a symbol of peace in Ukraine and around the world. Legend has it that “the more people in the world who continue to teach and make pysanky, the less chance evil will prevail.” All proceeds from this workshop series will help offset the costs of transporting/shipping donated items from Wisconsin to Ukraine.
Discover the art and the process of pysanky. Participants will use a kistka (a beeswax-filled ancient tool warmed over a candle fire) to draw designs on real (empty/blown-out) eggs between bathing them in bright-colored dyes. Participants will learn about the history, meaning of the colors, and symbols of this Ukrainian art during the workshop. All tools are provided.
