Students will need to bring their own egg dyed a very dark colour, and stay away from blues (they tend to rub off) as well as kleenex or glove to hold the egg, a pencil, suction cups if you have them, and a measuring tape.

I am a self-taught Pysankarka, although being born to Ukrainian immigrant parents, my mother never learned the art. I taught myself while still in grade school, grade 4 I think, after seeing ladies demonstrate how to write pysanky at the church. My father made me my first kistka, so with boiled crepe paper for dyes back then, I was off making pysanky. I was intrigued by the drapanka eggs, and so I also taught myself how to do this. I used to teach on how to make pysanky night school in my city.
