Class Experience

Creating a New World Vision From Ancient Design Considered by many to be a "sacred magical art", the creation of a talisman with specific intentions written into the life-giving egg, the Pysanky is an ancient means to celebrate the cycles and events in nature and in life. 


Created using motifs rooted in nature and the cycles of life, designs are made with simple instruments (made of wood and copper) called kistkas, the humble materials of beeswax and candlelight, and intensely vibrant dyes. Create a beautiful egg in the time-honored Ukrainian tradition of Pysanky, or create a symbolic piece of art to invoke a new world vision. 


This workshop will explore the art in a free form, using symbolism that tells a specific story and holds a deliberate intention. Instructor Coreen Weilminster has been making Pysanky for over 30 years. 



*Instructor will be offering opportunities to support the World Central Kitchen on the frontlines of Ukraine with each class.
