Pomp & Pysanky - March 25, 2017

Join us at ACUA for Pomp & Pysanka! During the month of March, long-time folk artist Eva Tomiuk will have her pysanka and embroidery on display in our gallery. To close her show, ACUA will have a pysanka making eggstravaganza where you will have the opportunity to learn all there is to know about writing Pysanky! From beginner to advanced workshops, all your old favourites, and some new techniques and styles! Feel free to bring your own specialty kistkas, such as an electric kistka if you have one.

These workshops are part of our Pomp & Pysanky Workshop Series; register for a morning and afternoon workshop and lunch will be included with your registration fees. You may register for 1 workshop.
