Drawing Zentangles is a fun, calming, and creative activity that brings you into the present moment. Take time out for yourself to create your first Zentangle along with a peaceful state of mind.

Pysanky Easter Eggs
Ellen’s home (223 Purple Glen Drive) 
Saturday afternoon, March 17, 2-4 pm

Wednesday evening, March 21
Varnishing and emptying eggs: March 25 or by arrangement 

Come learn how to make colorful pysanky eggs. Pysanky are Ukrainian Easter eggs that are created by a wax resist (batik) method of writing with beeswax on raw eggs, dipping them into a light-colored dye, writing some more, dipping them into a darker dye, etc., and then removing all the wax at the end. The dye colors are more intense than typical Easter egg dyes, which are food grade, and they are toxic so this event is for adults and older children (i.e., teenagers). Ellen will provide a brief description/demonstration and then provide all the materials needed for people to make one to three eggs. Hope you can participate in this fun and creative craft. Beautiful images are on many websites, such as http://www.learnpysanky.com and the designs you draw can be as simple or complex as you like.

Limited to 6 people (you must register and receive a response)
