From the Instructor Lidiia Olszowy : For many people it is an Easter egg decorated using a method similar to batik, but for Ukrainians it’s more than just a pretty egg. The Ukrainian pysanka (from the word pysaty (verb) /to write/) was believed to possess an enormous power not only in the egg itself, which harbored the beginning of life, but also in the symbolic designs and colors which were written upon the egg in a unique manner for centuries. The intricately colored eggs were used in every part of life – various social and religious occasions – and were considered to be a talisman and protector against evil, as well as harbingers of good, as well as a letter to someone.This class is set up for people with different skills levels. From beginners who have little or no experience in writing pysanky to experienced artists who are interested in learning this unique language and technique. Ukrainians have been decorating eggs and creating these miniature jewels for countless generations.
