You will be guided through all the steps of transforming a plain egg into a work of art.
Learn how to make Ukrainian Hand-Decorated Eggs, using the age-old method of wax resist. Lines of wax are applied to the eggshell, using a small tool called a “kistka”. The egg is then put into a dye bath, with the wax protecting the covered shell from subsequent color changes. This process is alternately repeated (wax/dye/wax/dye). After the full design is applied, the wax is removed (by melting it over a candle flame and wiping off) to reveal the bright colors underneath.
This Pysanka, or Ukrainian Easter egg, can then be displayed on a stand or hung as an ornament.
Materials (eggs, stylus, dyes, wax…) and instruction will be provided to make one or two Pysanky.
Kits will also be available for purchase, so that students can continue to make Pysanky and wax-resist batik-style eggs at home, for all seasons and occasions.

Teaching Artist: Basia Andrusko
I have been writing Pysanky for over four decades, gathering in the kitchen during Lent to carry on the Ukrainian tradition.
I find the creation process very soothing and meditative, and look forward to the moment of melting off the wax to reveal the design.
I write pysanky with traditional patterns, but I also enjoy creating egg art with fresh interpretations and original designs (like my beach-inspired seashell patterns).
They make great gifts, especially to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, new home, or just to share with someone special.

Snow and Inclement Weather
Severe weather poses many safety concerns for participants that may require modifications to the workshop’s hours. Based on current conditions in the area immediately surrounding the event and our best judgment, the Guild staff may delay the opening of a workshop or postpone a workshop to the following day. Circumstances that justify amending workshop hours include icy roads, rapid snowfall, tornado warnings, and other severe weather conditions. TPCA does not offer weather-related refunds of class fees unless the workshop is cancelled.
