The World Needs more Pysanky

Due to technical issues, it's been a while since we've posted on this blog.Thanks to GOOGLE we've got our blog back! 
Our first order of business (after saying a belated Happy New Year) is to announce our first Workshops of the year.
BC Family Day Pysanky Workshops

The world needs more pysanky.  Ancient legend says that "as long as pysanky are made, evil shall not prevail over good in the world". Learn how to make traditional Ukrainian Easter eggs with beeswax and dyes.

With a few simple tools and the proper instruction, anyone from 5 to 95 can learn to make a beautiful pysanka the traditional way. This is a great activity to do with your family and friends. What is so unique about my workshops?  I have been teaching pysanky since 1991 and over the years have amassed many, many teaching aids (samples, models, posters, etc.) handouts and best of all—empty eggshells—so that at the end of the workshop everyone takes home a pysanka that will last forever!
