Virtual Pysanka Demonstration (Folk Arts @ UHEC)

Join the UHEC staff for a virtual pysanka making workshop where workshop participants will learn about the history of the pysanka, (a Ukrainian decorated egg) and create their own, with step by step instruction. Participants must purchase their own supplies in advanced.


Participants will learn how to "write" their own pysanka along with the UHEC staff as they show how to plan your design and apply molten beeswax with a stylus (called a kistka), how to apply the color, and then how to remove the layers of wax to reveal your design. This is a beginner's workshop.

Plan to spend at least 2 - 3 hours for this workshop. Participants must purchase supplies in advance (supply list provided below). 

This workshop is FREE to watch online (link will be sent before the event), but registration is required.

Donations are gratefully accepted.
