The start of spring means that Easter is on the horizon, which for many people means one thing—it's time to start decorating eggs. But did you know that in Ukraine, Easter egg decorating is an important art form that dates back centuries? Known as pysanky, these Ukrainian Easter eggs are decorated using the wax-resist (batik) method. Covered in stunning motifs often taken from Slavic folk art, you'll also find these decorated eggs in many parts of eastern Europe. Join Claire Provencher as she teaches the basic techniques to make pysanka, a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist method. Using a stylus, beeswax and dyes, several layers of color are built up on the egg’s surface. When complete, the wax is melted off, revealing the vividly colored design. Class fee includes all the supplies needed to create your Pysanky Egg. No artistic experience necessary and beginners are welcome! Claire Provencher is a native of Manchester, New Hampshire. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education in 1991 from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. In 2015 she received her Master of Arts in Art Education with a concentration in Ceramics from the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
