Spring Break Workshops at Ukrainian Centre (March 2018)

Doesn't this look delicious? Wondering what perohy and holubsi have to do with pysanky?

Ukrainian soul food — perohy, holubsi, stuffed chicken breasts with mushroom sauce, and lemon meringue pie
The Ukrainian Centre on Francis Road in Richmond (close to the Vancouver Int'l Airport and minutes from downtown by Skytrain) is the venue for upcoming pysanky workshops, and we went to their monthly "Friday Night Supper" to enjoy some soul food and promote the event. Our neighbours, their kids, and friends joined us.

Here's Aaron demonstrating the technique and taking registration.

With Family and Friends

February started with our first long weekend of the year, the much-appreciated Family Day statutory holiday today, February 12th. That marked our eventful annual Family Day workshops in our pysanky studio conducted by Joan Brander where the love of the artform was shared by all. Our perennial attendees were there, along with the added cultural infusion of students from China and Brazil who were amazed with our tradition. We think they’ll be back practicing for Spring and Easter. Look how proud they are of their creations!
