Guild practices ancient process of creating Ukranian eggs
Members and friends of the Morris Watercolor Guild gathered this month to create art of a whole different genre from watercolor. They learned the ancient technique of making pysanka, or Ukrainian Easter eggs.
The eggs are made from real chicken eggs, brought in from the grocery store the morning of the guild’s workshop, and drilled and hollowed out first thing. Handling the eggs and “painting” on them with hot wax was not the easiest thing, members said.
First of all, the eggshells were obviously quite fragile, and there were more than a few that got broken in the many steps of the process. Guild members found other difficulties, as well.
