Want to learn how to paint a pysanka? What’s a “pysanka”, you say? A pysanka is a type of painted Ukrainian Easter Egg. Painting them is not nearly as easy as those you might have boiled, inscribed with a crayon, then dipped into colored dyes like I did as a child.
In fact painting (literally writing) on a pysanka is a very intricate and difficult process mastered only by a true artist — like Halyna Syrotyuk who was our mentor for a master class she gave, documented in this video, and shot by Diana Borysenko our remarkably talented and resourceful guide/translator/driver/videographer/(you name it).
Visiting Lviv, one of Eastern Europe’s as yet undiscovered secrets, a traveler can be dazzled by its many pleasures, and one of those delights could be your own pysanka! Contact Diana Borysenko now to arrange your genealogical/heritage tour of beautiful Lviv and Western Ukraine plus register for a masterclass with Halina.
Be sure to check out our blogs as well as the latest videos on our tours of “The Old Country” [Стара країна] featuring the amazing Diana not only as our guide, but translator and driver as well. Україна чекає на вас!
