Register now for Pysanky Egg Painting Workshop

Saturday, March 9th, 2013 | Posted by

Join  artist Mary Alice Wilson at Towers Gallery from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 16 in honoring the fun and long-established art of Pysanka.

Originating in the Ukraine, Pysanka is a simple and fun technique that involves decorating an egg using a wax-resist and dyes.

The word Pysanka comes from the Ukrainian word “pysaty,” which means “to write.”  The designs are not painted on, rather they are written with beeswax

Wilson will walk workshop participants through the process as they learn how to design their own pattern, transfer it to an egg, draw on the beeswax, and then dye their very own Pysanky egg.

All materials are included in the course fee of $35. Class size is limited to 10 participants and advance paid reservations are required.

To register, visit the Towers Gallery at 240 N. Cloverdale Blvd. or call 894-4331. Credit and debit cards are welcome.
