Vinegar-Etched Pysanky Workshop

  • Starts May 28
  • 32 US dollars
  • East Cooke Road

In this class, you will receive a brief history of the art of Pysanky or Ukrainian Easter Eggs, an overview of the process, instruction and hands-on egg crafting. We will explore traditional and modern designs and will use a vinegar bath to etch brown eggs to which you can add additional colors. You will create two dyed eggs to give as gifts, make into ornaments, or keep as a decorative memento! 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. It’s helpful to have experience with egg crafting or the wax resist process, but not required. In light of COVID-19, attendees are requested to wear a face mask during this indoor class. Class size is strictly limited to 10 students. You'll be working with color dyes and open flames; please dress accordingly and tie back long hair. INSTRUCTOR: Local poultry expert Denise Beno has always been drawn to this cultural art form. She attributes this to her Eastern European ancestral roots. While Denise was a poultry farmer, she picked up a basic kit and taught herself the craft of Pysanka. She has been crafting eggs for almost 20 years, typically gifting them to family and loved ones.
