Hosted by Crisp Museum

The name Pysanky comes from the verb to write. Pysanky surface design and handling techniques will be demonstrated. A stylus, called a kistka, is used to write with wax on the eggshell. The kistka has a handle and a small funnel which holds melted wax. Symbols and colors have meaning in this process. Choose your lightest color first, or start with the white of the shell. Then, draw your design with wax, before going on to your next color. Participants will leave with a completely decorated egg from one session. 

This event takes place on March 1, 2, 5, and 6.
