Embrace the beauty and history of Ukrainian Pysanky, an age-old art form that has captivated generations with its intricate patterns and symbolism. For centuries, artists have used beeswax to inscribe ancient symbols on bird's eggs, creating mesmerizing masterpieces.

While synthetic dyes have become increasingly popular over time, two talented artists – Lubov Ktitorova and Tetiana Vlenenko – have been on a quest to rediscover the enchanting world of natural dyes. With 14 years of experimentation and research under their belts, Luba and Tetiana have delved deep into the wisdom of their predecessors, explored medicinal plants, and studied textile dyeing techniques.

Luba and Tetiana reveal their favourite natural dye recipes, using both fresh and dried ingredients. You'll find a comprehensive table showcasing the plants used in their dyeing process, as well as valuable insights into how mordants can enhance and expedite the dyeing experience.

As a testament to their incredible work, the book also features a stunning collection of 100 pages worth of naturally dyed eggs, exhibiting both traditional and original designs that are sure to inspire your own Pysanky creations.

This book, written in Ukrainian, includes a concise English summary at the end, making it accessible to Pysanky enthusiasts worldwide. Embark on a journey to rediscover the magic of Pysanky with natural dyes, and let Luba and Tetiana guide you every step of the way. 🌱✨
