Pysanky dates back to the pre-Christian era. 'Pysanky' comes from the word 'to write' as the designs are not painted but written with bees wax. The designs/symbols had magical powers to ward off evil spirits, banish Winter, guarantee a good harvest and bring a person good luck. Similar designs occur in pottery, woodwork, metalwork, Ukrainian embroidery and other Folk Art.

Workshops are 3 hours long, providing everything you need to make these beautiful eggs.
