Ukrainian Egg Dyeing (Pysanky): 40 Triangles Method

June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Learn the art of Pysanky, traditional Ukrainian decorated eggs.

Students will learn to make Ukrainian-style decorated eggs, using layers of wax, colored dye, and hollow chicken eggs. This class will focus on learning the 40 triangles division that is the base for many traditional designs. The class is suitable for complete beginners, and would also be good for returning pysanky students who want to build on their skills.

Students will take home two hollow dyed eggs (sprayed with clear acrylic gloss if weather permits) and one kistka (wax “writing” tool)

G rade 9-Adult (Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult)

* Please wear clothes you are comfortable with getting dye on!*

Molly Ison is an artist living in Johnson City and specializing in Ukrainian egg dyeing (pysanky). Her work combines traditional methods with symbols and motifs from many sources and cultures. She is currently working on a tarot inspired series of eggs.

EVENT CALENDAR PURPOSE AND CRITERIA

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
