The history of pysanky, or Ukrainian Easter eggs, can be traced back to 2000 B.C. Throughout Eastern Europe these symbols of hope combine intricate geometric patterns, multiple colors, and folk motifs into amazing and unique pieces of art. Instructor Carol Ann Eckrich, a Master Gardener and Conservatory volunteer, will guide you through the repeated steps of drawing with melted wax and coloring with dye baths until you create your very own pysanka. Each participant will take home a tool kit including the kistka stylus, beeswax, and 6 dyes so he or she can continue practicing and creating new egg designs at home. Ages 18+.
