Make Your Own Ukrainian Easter Egg (Pysanky Workshop)
A pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write" or "to inscribe," as the designs are not painted on, but written (inscribed) with beeswax. All tuition and materials are provided. This event is being offered by Sonia Kowal (daughter of Concord residents Irene and Igor) and supported by The Umbrella Arts Center to promote the community initiative - Concord for Ukraine. Ms. Kowal has conducted pysanky workshops at the Boston Center for Adult Education and at Boston College.
