The fee for the workshop is $20 per person and all proceeds will go to Looking Out Foundation. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Instructor Lesia Sochor is an artist of Ukrainian descent who lives in Brooks, Maine. She learned the ancient spring tradition of decorating Pysanky from her mother and has shared this craft in numerous workshops throughout the state.

The Pysanka, a decorated egg was common among Slavic peoples as far back as 5,000 B.C. and was deeply important in spring rituals, symbolizing nature’s rebirth. When decorating eggs in the Ukrainian style, designs are drawn on the egg with melted beeswax, which flows from a tool called a Kystka. The eggs are then dipped in a series of dyes and the final pattern is revealed when the wax is removed. For more information and a beautiful video, link to Lesia’s site here.
