Pysanky Melbourne Workshop
Join us in Silk Laundry Melbourne for our unique Ukrainian Pysanky Workshop.
Our 3hr pysanky workshop will run you through the brief history of the pysanky process, as well as the cultural significance of the decorated egg. After a brief introduction lead by our instructor Vera Mitchell (Katie’s aunt), it’ll be your turn to get creative with your own pysanky. But don’t worry, our instructor will be there to help you perfect your craft.
A pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with a traditional Ukrainian method that uses beeswax. The word pysanka is a derivative of the word pysaty, meaning ‘to write’. This is because the beeswax art that decorates the eggs goes through a process of inscription, as opposed to painting.
All tools and materials will be provided.
During the class you will:
- learn about the cultural history of pysanka,
- learn how to inscribe pysanka, and
- make up to 2 pysanky to take home.
100% of event proceeds will be donated to VET Crew who are assisting with animals that are left stranded in Ukraine war zones.
Current event sessions:
- Melbourne: Saturday 19th March: 10am - 1pm
