Crafters Ukrainian Easter Eggs Painting

Get into the Easter Spirit with this traditional Eastern European art form.  Pysanky painting is a batik technique - using dyes and wax.  Between each colour, we apply wax where we want to preserve the current colour:  the wax resists all the future dyes.  When you melt the wax off at the end, a beautiful multi-colour pattern is revealed.  You can do a traditional pattern, just make blobs and shapes - or anything in between.    If you can hold a pencil, you can do this.  This is a fun family activity:  good for all ages and all artistic abilities!  Angela will be teaching this workshop.

There will be 3 workshops.  The last 2 workshops will cover specific techniques, but you can also just come and keep working the basics.  You will have the option of buying the materials.
