pysanky eggs Join Sharon Leonard, the “Egg Lady”, as she shares over 30 years of experience teaching this Ukrainian folk art. Pysanka is a Ukrainian decorative egg, created by using the written wax batik method. Beeswax mixed with soot and melted in a stylus is used to 'write' or make designs and symbols on the egg. Color is added by dipping the egg. Once the last dark color is used, the wax is melted over a flame and wiped away to reveal the colorful design underneath. Learn about this folk art form and create your own beautiful egg in this hands-on workshop. All materials (including eggs) will be provided. Space is limited to 20 participants. Registration required. Ages 14 and up.

This event is fully booked.
