PYSANKA WORKSHOPS Spring 2024

Learn how to make an intricately decorated egg known as Ukrainian “pysanky” – traditionally created to celebrate Easter or spring. Steeped in history and culture, discover the ancient technique of wax-resist – the process that gives the eggs their beautiful and distinctive look. Then decorate a real eggshell, finalizing the process with a candle at home. All supplies provided.

The workshop will be led by Marta Mudri, who has made pysanka her whole life. She has sold her work at the Ukrainian Museum Archives in Cleveland, where she was once a board member and where she remains an advisor. Marta was recently interviewed by PBS (April, 2022) about the meaning of the pysanka, both historically and in the current moment of war.
