Description
Pysanky are beautiful intricate looking wax resist dyed eggs that are surprisingly easy to learn! We will cover the history and basic how-to of pysanky design while writing eggs using modern dyes, and briefly discuss natural dyestuffs appropriate to our period. Material fees will cover a set of tools for each student to take home. Children are welcome but may need an adult helper because the dye is permanent on fabric! Please know the dyes WILL stain clothing, so dyer beware
