Description

Learn the colorful and venerable craft of decorating eggs in the Ukrainian style, known as pysanky (their name is derived from the Ukrainian verb meaning to write). Expert egg decorator Susan Clark will lead the workshop for adults and children. This ancient craft uses symbols and motifs to create a jewel-like egg. Intricate designs can be created with geometric forms, or with more naturalistic, flowing patterns. Participants will be using a kistka, a pointed implement a bit like a pen, filled with beeswax and heated, to draw designs on the eggs between bathing them in colored dye. Decorate eggs in a traditional design, or create your own.

Because of COVID restrictions, the workshop is strictly limited to 15 participants, and will follow safety guidelines. The program will take place in the Abbott Barn. Family pods will be seated together. Fee is per participant, and includes materials. For adults and children ages 9 and up.

Wilton Historical Society Members $30; Non-members $40.
Registration required: info@wiltonhistorical.org or call 203-762-7257.

“According to Ukrainian folklore, the fate of the world depends on pysanky, intricately decorated dyed Easter eggs. As long as people make pysanky, it is said, a monster personifying evil will remain chained to its cliff and the world will be safe.” – The New York Times, , 4/5/1984
