The interest in Pysanky Egg Workshops has created more classes for the Ukrainian based folk art form. Two new classes have been scheduled by the Union County Heritage Museum:
Pysanky III, Thursday, May 12, 2022 at 10am-1:00pm $25 each Space for 12
Pysanky IV, Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 10am-1pm $25 each Space for 12
These will be the third and fourth classes taught by Denise Brown.
Known as pysanky, these Ukrainian Easter (or any occasion) eggs are decorated using the wax-resist (batik) method. Covered in stunning motifs often taken from Slavic folk art, you’ll also find these decorated eggs in many parts of eastern Europe.
Creating these eggs takes focus and attention to detail, but the results are stunning works of art that are traditionally given as gifts to family members and community leaders. In fact, pysanka is so important to the culture that it’s thought that it was even produced in prehistoric Ukraine.
