Pysanki Workshop (Ukrainian Easter Eggs)/Flamenco Sundays

  • Drom taberna 458 Queen Street West Toronto, ON, M5V 2A8 Canada (map)

2pm Pysanki Workshop (Ukrainian Easter Eggs)

Learn the ancient art of Ukrainian Easter Egg decorating-- a sacred and meditative practice. Pysanky are made using the wax-resist "batik" method, in which designs are drawn or written onto the egg with beeswax, and then submerged in a series of dyebaths. Pysanky are often very intricate and include layers of meaning, imbued with symbols of protection and goodwill.

Instructors will guide you through all the steps of transforming a plain egg into a work of art. Beginners welcome.

All materials will be provided (eggs, stylus, dyes, wax…)
Additional materials and kits will be on sale to take home.

7pm Flamenco with Tamar Ilana/Shirlita Pili

A few years ago, the Toronto Flamenco community hosted weekly Sunday Flamenco nights at a place called Naco, and we are looking to start that up again!

We will start off with a duo performance, and then open the floor to the broader flamenco community - come practice your favourite letra and dance moves!
