Pysanky are the beautiful, elaborate, Easter eggs found in Polish, Ukrainian, and Russian traditions. Learning this ancient technique for decorating Easter eggs is actually easy. Using a stylus calleda kistka, we will write with melted beeswax onto the shell of a rawegg, then dip it into vibrant dyes. We will complete two different eggs in the workshop, and you willkeep your kistka and wax to use at home. Join us to make your own little heirloom – it’s a lot of fun, and the results will impress your family and friends!

Youwill have a tool called a kistka which you will melt blackened beeswax in and you will then draw on the egg and just follow the design,drawing first on the white shell,then dyeing it yellow, then drawing more wax lines on top of the yellow dye, then it will go into orange dye, again you will add more wax lines, then dye it red, again adding more wax, then finishing thebackground in a black. After thisis done the egg is quite ugly, all black and covered with beeswax that has hardened onto the shell, Iwill then drill a hole in the bottom and empty the insides of the raw egg out, then we will melt the beeswax off of the shell, and viola!
