Pysanky: Ukrainian Easter Eggs
I leave for Ukraine in exactly one month! I will arrive the day before a Ukrainian holiday: Orthodox Easter (two weeks later than the Easter celebrated by most people here). I am lucky to have a co-worker, Giancarla Kalpas, who is skilled in the art of Pysanky, which is a traditional Ukrainian folk art involving decorating eggs. These eggs are very fancy and made using a batik method with various layers of wax art. A few days ago, some Innovation Academy teachers enjoyed an afternoon of crafting. Here are the results.
