Pysanka are eggs decorated with traditional folk designs commonly found in the Ukraine and other Eastern European countries using a wax-resist method. All materials provided. Benefit for the Waterbury Food Shelf.
Create Pysanka egg decoration in a workshop at the Grange Hall Cultural Center, led by Lindsey Bolger, Dec 8, 2018, 1-4pm to benefit the Waterbury Food Shelf.
Lindsey Bolger will instruct community members how to create a Pysanka-- a beautiful egg colored using the wax-resist method! Pysanka are eggs decorated with traditional folk designs commonly found in the Ukraine and other Eastern European countries. While typically associated with the Easter holiday, these colorful and long-lasting decorated eggs make a lovely hand-crafted gift any time of year. During this workshop, you will learn how to design and create your own Pysanka using bees wax and an array of colorful dyes ready for the holiday season.
All required materials will be provided for your use, including hollowed-out chicken eggs, special Pysanka tool for applying bees wax and a variety of liquid dyes. Make a traditional design or go free-style with something uniquely your own! Depending on the complexity of your design, you'll have time to create two Pysanka.
Great activity to do with your young adults!
