Pysanky (Ukrainian) Easter Eggs

Pysanky are traditional Ukrainian Easter eggs created by alternately drawing designs on an egg with melted wax and dipping the eggs in intensely colorful dyes to create a batik effect. Traditional designs combine complex geometric patterns with plant and animal motifs that are meant to celebrate the arrival of spring and embody the wish for a bountiful growing season. In preparation for Easter, come experiment with making traditional and novel designs on eggs of your own using this simple and ancient technique. All supplies are included.
