Make your Easter exquisitely special by learning to make Ukrainian Easter eggs with Bob Byers March 21-22.

The process “writing Pysanky” is simple – similar to batik using beeswax and dyes on an eggshell. The results are fascinating and can be stunningly beautiful. You will be surprised and delighted when the hidden designs beneath the wax is revealed. 

The story and myth behind this ancient origin of the Easter Egg is rich and delightful. Created by women in the night, these colorful gifts would be taken to the church Easter morning to be blessed before giving them away. Pysanky held powerful magic, and were said to protect households from evil spirits.To give a pysanka is to give a symbolic gift of life.
