Pisanki – making Polish Easter eggs

Fourteen families, with 16 adults, and over 40 kids were learning how to make pisanki at our house today in two 2-hour shifts. The centuries-old art of Polish pisanki is a wax-resist method of decorating Easter eggs. The word comes from the verb “to write” –pisać (PEE sahtch) in Polish and pysaty in Ukrainian — as the designs are not painted on, but written with 100% pure beeswax. Every Eastern European country has its version. Eggs are a symbol of spring and rebirth around the world and they have become a symbol of Easter and the Resurrection.
