February 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$25.00
As winter blankets Howell, immerse yourself in the captivating art of Pysanky! Join our easy beginner class and discover the intricacies of Ukrainian egg art. As spring approaches, our egg workshops become very popular, so securing your spot early ensures you’ll be ready to gift your friends with exquisitely decorated Pysanky.
Join us in discovering the centuries-old tradition of Pysanky and learn how to create these handmade gifts ready for springtime celebrations. Gifting Pysanky eggs is a cherished tradition in many Ukrainian and Eastern European cultures. These intricately decorated eggs often hold symbolic meanings and are exchanged as gifts during special occasions like Easter, weddings, birthdays, or other significant celebrations. The eggs are considered symbols of protection, fertility, and goodwill, making them meaningful and heartfelt gifts. They showcase not only the artistic skill of the creator but also carry cultural and personal significance when given to others.
In this favorite Mi Craft House workshop you will learn the wax-resist dyeing techniques that make Pysanky eggs so mesmerizing. All supplies and tools are included to use during our workshop. Leave with not just a beautifully adorned egg that is emptied and ready for display in a wood stand, but also the skills and inspiration to continue this ancient art form.
For those eager to continue creating at home, consider pre-ordering a starter design kit from our shopping area on this website. Your kit will be prepared for pickup on your class day, providing you with the materials and guidance to continue this beautiful craft in the comfort of your own space. When making a purchase of supplies in our online store, you can request shipping or select “pickup”. (contact us if you would like to pickup on a date prior to your workshop date).
