Workshop about pysanky

April 1 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

On Saturday, April 1, Ukrainian born Maya Chenier will demonstrate and guide participants in a workshop about pysanky – the art of decorating Easter eggs. A student at Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute, Chenier was encouraged by art teacher Gisele Paquette to teach this traditional wax-resist technique to fellow students, and to present a workshop at the gallery.

Margo Chomkulska, fellow Ukrainian and VCI student, will join Chenier in showcasing pieces from traditional Ukrainian folk art. Aside from pysanky eggs, they have prepared pieces of traditional vytynanka, the art of cutting out intricate designs in paper, practiced in Ukraine and other Slavic countries. These stunning pieces will be on display in the small hall of the gallery, during the entire month of April.
