The Art of Pysanky Ukrainian Egg Decorating is an event hosted by Artbeat, 212A Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA 02474 from Wednesday, March 22, 2017 to Friday, March 24, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
You and your little ones can find egg decorating kits, dyes, wax, tools and more at Artbeat. With Spring and Easter now on the horizon, it’s time to think about decorating eggs. The Ukrainian word “pysanky” can be translated to “writing”, and this art form involves writing on real eggs with wax and dipping them in successive dyes. This wax relief method, similar to batik, creates extraordinary designs and magnificent works of art. Families can join to view a short movie that explains a history of the craft and demonstrates the process. This will be a unique and fascinating experience, for adults and children age 10 and older. Free and open to all.
