Ukrainian Easter Egg Demonstration @ The Hub on Canal
2:00 PM – 5:00 PM

pysanky process, eggs,Jo Swindell has been decorating eggs since 1989, the first few years hand-painting with acrylics.  In 1994 she began studying pysanka, a Ukrainian Easter egg decorating technique using a wax-resist method, to create simple objects of great beauty.

The pysanky process involves building the final egg design by applying multiple layers of hot wax and dyes and requires several days to complete.

The finished eggs are protected with a light coat of lacquer and have been blown to eliminate any possibility of spoilage.

This demonstration is FREE to the public.
