Traditional Ukrainian Pysanka writing is an ancient art stemming from the heart of Ukraine. This art was practiced by young women who would gift the eggs to young men they wanted to marry, laden with symbols of love, hope, eternity, faith, and prosperity. Originally, vegetable dyes were used to colour the eggs, and makers employed a batik process of waxing areas between the several dipped layers of colour. In this family-friendly workshop, each participant will create their own beautiful painted egg. We will welcome participants as young as 4 – children aged 4 to 8 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
