Some of the highlights will include…
Please note this is a discussion/demo. I will offer some take away materials as well as 1 or 2 designs that can be used for practice during the course of the retreat.
Cost: $10 CAD per person

Writing pysanky is an art and tradition that has been part of me for most of my life and learnt from my mother. Creating a pysanka has never lost that intrinsic sense of magic and mystery; an activity where the motion of writing often provides entry into a creative universe where new ideas and perspectives come to life. Painting, gardening, reading, fermenting, art history and cats also play various roles in this creative process.
