Learn the Art of Pysanky – wax-resist egg decorating –

No more pastel eggs for you! Using traditional tools and methods, Jim Hutt of French-Canadian and German descent, will teach egg decorators how to create traditional or non-traditional Ukrainain style designs on their egg using a wax-resist method (like batik). The term Pysanka means to write, and kistkas (wax pens) are used to keep each dyed color separate (from lightest to darkest) by covering it with beeswax. When all the colors have been applied, the beeswax is melted off and the beautifully decorated egg is revealed.

Participants should bring fresh eggs, not blown; fresh from hens if possible. Dye colors show best on white eggs, but brown eggs can add an interesting variety. Pysanky hazards include breaking eggs in a variety of ways, so bring extras.

Saturday, April 15, 2017 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Fee for this class: $10 per person for Arts Center members; fee for non-members is $20 per person. Class fee includes all special Pysanky materials and instruction. Please bring your own eggs.
