I recently went to a psanky workshop, taught by Kiena the Blue, here in my local barony. Psanky is the art of decorating eggs and dates all the way back to ancient societies. And it's lots of fun!
Kiena has made lots of beautiful psanky, and I was so happy to have a chance to learn from her. We each made one psanka in class. To decorate, we drew our designs on the eggs in light pencil, and then each time you apply a color, you apply wax to the egg in the areas you do not want the color to touch.

Here is my psanka! I hope this is my first of many, but we'll see. I already have more hobbies than I have time for. Oh, the woes of an artisan.
