450-Pysanky Egg Painting

Pysanky are the beautiful, elaborately decorated eggs found in Polish, Ukrainian and Russian traditions. While they may look difficult to make, learning the design technique is quite easy. You will learn the step by step process used to create these jewels and a little bit of the history behind these small works of art. It’s a lot of fun and the results are always impressive. Finished eggs make great gifts or decorations for your own home.
