Learn the ancient art of Ukrainian Easter Egg decorating in this 3-week course.

Pysanky, as these eggs are known in Ukrainian, are made using the wax-resist technique, in which designs are drawn or written onto the egg with beeswax, and then submerged in a series of dye baths. Learn about the layers of meaning behind designs as you add layers of colour to your egg. Instructor, Elizabeth Sorochan, draws on her Ukrainian-Canadian heritage to share this cultural experience with you.

Elizabeth Sorochan

Elizabeth Sorochan is a passionate artist with a lifelong dedication to the ancient art of pysanky. Introduced to this artform by her Ukrainian grandmother, she turns her intention each springtime to the communal spirit of egg writing, where possibility unfolds line by line with each symbol and each colour. For Elizabeth, the design process is an unfolding of eternal truths, blending technical precision with mystical depth, and drawing from a canon of traditional symbolism that reaches back to Neolithic cultures.
