The SCPN Presents



Ukranian Egg Decorating Playshop With Lilith deAnu
Followed by a Ritual for Ostara

Pysanky - Ukrainian Easter Eggs: These are a traditional craft in Ukraine, with a history of thousands of years. The method is similar to batik - patterns are drawn on the egg with wax, which then protects the covered areas from the dye that is applied. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Finally, the wax is removed to reveal the colors that were covered up at each stage. The symbols and colors used are rich in meaning; many pre-date the arrival of Christianity, and have had Christian interpretations layered on afterward.

Lilith deAnu will teach us about this art form and it's history. Then we will get to decorate our own eggs. Afterwards there will be a ritual blessing of the eggs. More details to come soon.

POTLUCK   FEAST
 
Since our gathering is at the dinner hour, we ask that you bring a potluck dish and/or non-alcoholic brew to share that serves 4-6 people. Let’s treat ourselves to a good meal. Please bring your own place setting. There will be hot water available for tea.
 
We ask non-members to make a donation of $10 – $5 to help us cover operating costs. No one turned away for lack of funds.

SEE YOU THERE!
