On the morning of Good Friday (April 7 '23) many budding artists gathered in the Fellowship Hall to learn the Ukrainian art of writing Pysanky. Bees wax is melted through a funnel tool called a kistka, which preserves the coloured writing beneath on a raw egg. The colours are layered and the designs covered until the big reveal when the wax is carefully removed with heat. Finally, the egg is varnished to help preserve it for years to come. The designs and colours were beautiful and definitely worth another go at it - but next Easter. With over 20 people of all ages drawn to try out this art, and only a few broken eggs, I’d say it was a smashing success. - Joan B.
