Pysanky Decorating Demonstration (NAPANEE)

  • Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives 97 Thomas St. East Napanee, Ontario Canada (map)

Join us at Museum Kids on April 1st at 10 am for a fun demonstration of Pysanky egg decorating. What is Pysanky? Pysanky is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax. Sparkbox Studios will be showing us how the eggs are decorated. Kids will have an opportunity to create their own design and prepare scratch art using paper. Some pre-made eggs will be available for sale if participants wish to try an egg at home.
