Psykany Eggs (Ukranian Decorated Eggs)

Come to Gather on July 24 at 6pm to learn this incredible Ukranian tradition of decorating eggs!  This is not just an Easter thing - these eggs are beautiful and look great displayed in your house year round!

Pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg decorated with traditional folk designs using the wax-resist method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write" as the designs are not painted on but written (inscribed) with beeswax. The wax-resist method lets the design build little by little creating a beautiful, vibrant motif on the egg once the wax is removed. I fell in love with this method of egg decorating shown to me by my grandmother and have passed on the tradition to my children. I would love to share the gift of pysanky with you and spread the beauty of this Eastern European tradition!
