Service Description

Pysanky egg decorating is a folk tradition that is both art and prayer. This process of creating designs on eggs is an ancient art, typically made in Ukraine, Poland, and Russia and practiced as an Easter ritual. This tutorial will cover the history and traditions surrounding Pysanky, how to make your own egg, and an independent practice session. The instructors will provide a variety of eggs, many traditional colored dyes, and tools. A great deal of patience and concentration is required to complete a single egg, but it is very rewarding to reveal your hard work when the wax is taken off. All skill levels and ages can create an original pysanka. Enjoy the therapeutic and soulful process of Pysanky, It brings you to the present moment, and lets you do something relaxing in an almost trance-like state, easily shutting out other distractions. When you focus on creating egg art your worries float through and away, just as you do in meditation. You will leave with a beautiful egg at the end of the session. Please bring a container or old egg carton. Cost $25 Pre-Registration is required. Donations can be greater than $25 and non attendees can donate, too!! Must be over the age of 12. All skill levels welcome. Class will be held at Vyana Cafe 1pm to 3pm. All proceeds will go to Planting Peace - Ukrainian Refugee Crisis MUST Venmo @Eileen-Kubilus to attend.
