March 5 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm$89.
Make Ukrainian Easter eggs using batik – also called wax-resist – dyeing. Participants will also be familiarized with the wide range of Ukrainian folk art traditional patterns, designs and symbols and their history. The designs are made with beeswax which is melted in the flame of a candle and applied to the egg using a tool called a kistka. The eggs are dipped into successively darker dyes. At the end of the process the beeswax is melted off to reveal the beautiful and colorful design. Use the traditional patterns, or also freestyle and make up your own design.
