The origin of Pysanky is believed to have been with Cucuteni–Trypillia culture of Eastern Europe over 5,000 years ago. The giving of decorated eggs in European cultures has continued to this day. In this class, you will receive a brief history of the art of Ukrainian Easter Eggs or Pysanky, an overview of the wax resist process, instruction in design and hands-on egg writing. We will explore traditional and modern designs using two or three colors. You will be writing TWO eggs to take home with you! This class teaches one of the many ways to create and write Pysanky or Ukrainian Easter Eggs. It’s helpful to have experience with egg crafting or the wax resist process, but not required.

INSTRUCTOR: Denise Beno has always been fascinated by Faberge eggs and Ukrainian egg art and was naturally drawn to this art form. She attributes this to her Eastern European ancestral roots. While Denise was a poultry farmer, she picked up a basic pysanka kit and taught herself the craft of Pysanky. She has been crafting eggs for almost 20 years, typically gifting them to family and loved ones. You can purchase her eggs and other artwork at www.Etsy.com/shop/thepeaceturtle/.
