Ukrainian Egg Workshop


Father Paul Luniw
Tuesday April 4, 2023
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Help Ukraine while honoring their beautiful Easter tradition. Arts Escape is honored to be working with Father Paul Luniw to offer a Ukrainian egg making workshop. A pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg that is decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using wax and dyes. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write" or as the designs are inscribed with beeswax. Fr. Paul will give a brief lecture about the history of Ukrainian egg making and then will demonstrate the methods that will be used to make the creation. We will be collecting cash/check donations for the Ukraine on the day of the workshop that Fr. Paul is sending through his church for relief efforts.

This class is limited to 24 participants.

CLASS DATE & TIME: Tuesday, April 4 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

COST: $35 per person plus a supply fee up to $30 for painting the pysanka eggs

LOCATION: Arts Escape, 493 Heritage Rd. Suite 4C, Southbury
