Pysanka (plural:pysanky) is the traditional Ukrainian craft that uses the batik technique to dye real egg shells. Known as one of the original Easter eggs. 

The tip of a stylus pen (kistka in Ukraine) containing beeswax is heated by a candle, and lines are written on the surface of the egg. 

Geometric patterns, animals, flowers, fish, birds, crosses, etc. are written, and each pattern has a symbolic meaning such as prosperity of descendants, health, and longevity. 

 Made with prayers, it is given to family and friends as a talisman or amulet, or displayed at home. 

At the end of the manufacturing process, there is something very moving about it, but it is not well known in Japan, so I am holding workshops to let people know about this excitement. 


Since 2013, mastered the technique in the course of Ukrainian pysanky writer Tetyana Solotska
