Pysanky are a lot like Asheville: unique, fun, and colorful!
In this workshop, we will be making beautiful Ukrainian Easter eggs: pysanky. You will learn the method of batik (also called wax-resist) dying. You will also be familiarized with the wide range of Ukrainian folk art traditional patterns, designs, and symbols and their history. The designs are made with beeswax, which is melted in a candle flame and applied to an egg using a tool called a kistka. The eggs are dipped into successively darker dyes. At the end of the process, the beeswax is melted off to reveal the beautiful and colorful design. You may use the traditional patterns, or freestyle and make up your own design!
