Pysanky (plural) are Easter eggs decorated using a wax resist method. During this workshop, you will be creating Christmas ornaments using a simplified two colour method of the same process and materials as traditional style Pysanky.

Sheelah will give a brief history of the craft before demonstrating technique and one-on-one instruction. This is a fun, lighthearted and easygoing class for family and friends to do together. Students are encouraged to experiment and create their own one of a kind Christmas Ornament; however, pattern examples will also be provided. The drawing tool (kistka) and wax will be yours to take home and will allow you to create more ornaments on your own.
