Eggs to Dye For


with Sharon Hill

Calendar Mar 6, 2018 at 5:30 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Decorate eggs with the traditional Ukrainian method (Pysanky) of using beeswax and dye (aka the batik method). Patterns are drawn on the egg with hot beeswax, which then protects the covered areas from the dye that is applied. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Finally, the wax is removed to reveal the colors that were covered up at each stage.
