Pysanky (with natural dyes)

  • Kosa Studio 4 Bellwoods Ave Toronto, ON, M6J Canada (map)

Kosa Kolektiv invites you to the studio for a special pysanka session with homemade dyes from locally foraged materials.

Participants will have the opportunity decorate pysanky (coloured eggs) and travlenky (etched eggs). Dyes featured in these sessions will vary from workshop to workshop, and will include: cabbage, onions skins, tumeric, beets, sumac, and more! 

$30 per session. All materials will be provided (eggs, stylus, dyes, wax, books, and examples of pysanky…)

Instruction will be informal, but highly informative with lots of individual attention. Please come by between 6-9pm, with instructional talks happening throughout.

All are welcome, no previous experience required! If you have already made pysanky, but have never tried using natural dyes: be prepared for a treat! It is a different twist compared to dyeing with the aniline dyes that are currently in common practice.
