Beautiful batik with a botanical flair! We have all admired the intricate patterns and vivid colors of Ukranian eggs. Start with an introduction to the history of the centuries-old craft of Pysanky and study botanical motifs with traditional ornamental patterns. Create your original egg design combining motifs. Learn about the specialized techniques and tools for this batik method using aniline dyes with wax resist. A discussion of dye colors and preparation will have you ready to create one sampler egg and one with your personal design, just in time for Easter.
