UKRAINIAN PYSANKY (new in 2015)

Demonstrating Artist

Natasha Stone & The Utah Ukrainian Association

Friday & Saturday only, Canopy D

Natasha Stone is a master of Ukrainian-style Easter eggs or pysanky. Pysanky is a wax resist technique similar to batik that involves repeatedly drawing intricate wax designs on a blown-out egg and then dying the egg with a succession of colors, from the lightest to the darkest, while keeping the areas that are already dyed covered with wax. Natasha learned her art from her grandmother and she uses the traditional designs and symbols that date back to ancient times.
