In this workshop, you’ll get the chance to create your very own Pysanka in the traditional wax-resist method. The theme for this class will be the symbol of the evergreen tree. Using a combination of beeswax, the “kistka” tool, and vibrant color dyes, you’ll learn how to create designs on the real chicken egg. Plus, you’ll have the option of turning your Pysanka into a festive Christmas ornament! I’ll show you how to add a variety of hangers to your egg. A $15 material fee is payable to the instructor upon arrival.
