Elegant Eggs

Elegant Eggs

Join Valentyna Galadza-Park of to learn about the rich symbolism of this ancient art form, and decorate your own masterpiece using a wax-resist technique. Create a traditional pysanka, or add a modern twist with your own patterns and motifs. Take inspiration from the many colours, patterns and symbols found throughout the Museum, or bring images you'd like to incorporate into your design. 

All supplies included. Maximum group size of 10. Participants will leave this three-hour workshop with at least one completed work of art to celebrate spring!

Valentyna specializes in mixing traditional methods with modern designs, and her unique art has been featured on the CBC and Ottawa’s A-Channel. Browse to learn more about this art and to see examples of Valentyna's work, and visit the ArtsyEggs Facebook page to see images of eggs made by Valentyna's students.
