I know, I know. We just finished up with the Christmas season.
But the deep, dark depths of winter are a good time to start working on your pysanky -- or at least pondering them.
The Lake Michigan Chapter of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society has already begun planning for our next event, a Pysanky Workshop, featuring an experienced practitioner of the art form that Rusyns and our European neighbors have perfected, Mary Ann Woloch Vaughn.
She'll be leading our Pysanky Workshop on Saturday, March 26, at 1 p.m. at Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church, 8530 W. 131st St., Palos Park, Ill. The workshop is designed to introduce the history and techniques of a folk art form that Rusyns hold dear.
We'll have more details as the event nears. But it's never too early to clear the date on your calendar.
