Pysanka Ukrainian Egg Workshop

Pysanka Ukrainian Egg Workshop

Pysanka is a Ukrainian decorative egg, created by using a wax batik method. Beeswax is mixed with soot and melted. A stylus is used to ‘write’ or make designs and symbols on the egg. Color is added by dipping the egg. Once the last dark color is used, the wax is melted over a flame and wiped away to reveal the colorful design underneath.

Learn about this folk art form and create your own beautiful egg in this hands-on workshop. All materials (including eggs) will be provided. The workshop will be run by the ‘Egg Lady’, Sharon Leonard. Sharon brings over 30 years of experience to this Ukrainian folk-art.

This program will be held in Knowlton Memorial Hall on Saturday, March 16, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. Registration is limited to 20 people, aged 8 to adult, so pre-registration is required (no later than March 12th, 2024) by calling phone 860-487-4420 or at this link:
