08. The Poppy: Ukraine's Blossom of Beauty - Linda Lishchuk Hupert - Thursday July 18th 3:30pm to 5:30pm

Uncover the artistry of the poppy, a symbol deeply rooted in Ukraine's rich cultural tapestry. In this engaging and informative workshop we'll dive into the vibrant world of poppy designs, providing you with an array of samples to spark your creativity.

In a warm and supportive environment, you'll handcraft your own pysanka, adorned with a unique poppy design. While we'll collaboratively create one egg during the session, the techniques and skills learned will equip you to explore a myriad of designs on your own.

The class fee of $30.00 CAD covers the workshop experience and also includes a comprehensive, full-colour instruction handout. These materials will serve as a valuable resource for your ongoing pysanky journey.

Please bring:

One or two chicken eggs (either emptied or full, as per your comfort), regular pysanky writing tools, an electric kistka, wax, and a pencil. Feel free to bring any other tools or materials that aid your pysanky creation process. No candles allowed in this venue.

Immerse yourself in the captivating tradition of pysanky and let the poppy - Ukraine's beloved flower - inspire your artistic expression.
