Pysanka Workshop

Columbia Art Center offers a Pysanka (Ukranian egg created with written wax) Workshop March 23 from noon – 2 p.m. Pysanky are objects of traditional folk art created by a method that is similar to batik. Patterns are drawn on the egg with hot beeswax, protects the covered areas from the dye that is applied afterwards. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Finally, the wax is removed to reveal the colors that were sequentially covered up at each stage. Skill Level: Beginner Class size limited to minimum of 2 and maximum of 12. Registration fee of $40 includes instruction, all supplies and materials and operating costs. Instruction by Yevheniia (Jena) Bazaliy.
