Psyanky are Ukrainian Easter eggs artistically colored with the wax and dye method. By ancient tradition mothers customarily passed this art to daughters in the weeks prior to Easter. In Santa Clarita you can learn to this almost-lost art at Golden Oak Adult School.
Golden Oak Adult School will offer a series of four Ukrainian Easter egg-dying classes on Saturdays March 10, 17, 24, 31 from 12 noon – 3 p.m. The cost is $40, plus a nominal lab fee of $10.00 per person (to cover the cost of dyes and students will receive a stylus to take home).
