Thank you for all your interest in our Pysanky Collectors event. Registration is now closed, as we have reached capacity. If you did not get to register, please look for photos after the March 23rd event.
The Maridon Museum is pleased to announce a first-time exhibit and presentation of the art form creation of exquisite Ukrainian Easter Eggs.
John Franchuk will demonstrate the Wax Resistant (Batik) Method of creating these little masterpieces. He became interested in making pysanky when he was in the seventh grade. His church had a social organization for teenagers and offered the art of making Pysanky as a project. John was eager to learn and started making two or three eggs a year while he was in high school and college. When he began teaching school he made a few for friends and family during the Lenten period. Since John’s retirement, he began to make these creations more frequently.
Now, we have a chance to meet this master and learn about this fascinating art form. Ukrainian Eggs will be available for purchase. Also, Kits for creating your own little object of art will be available for purchase.
Reservations are required – Space is limited. Please Call 724.282.0123 to register. The program is free to the public. Donations welcome.
