Pysanky

Pysanky

Pysanky2011

This is the name given to Ukrainian Easter Eggs

These are real chicken eggs, sometimes hard boiled, sometimes raw or blown and, if possible, the first egg laid by a young hen! And then highly decorated with traditional folklore designs

The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty  “to write” or to “inscribe” as the egg designs are not painted but inscribed with beeswax

These eggs are given at Easter to bless every part of life in the Ukraine as a talisman of prosperity, fertility, healing and protection, long life, and bounty

Natalya Cumming is Ukrainian and has run her business, Experience Ukraine for many years. From her base in Herefordshire she organises workshops in Pysanky egg painting, but now she is deeply involved in fundraising for the people of the Ukraine
