Grades 1 to 8 – Pysanky Workshop

Timmins Museum Education Programmes


When Ukrainian families immigrated to Timmins in the early 1900s, they brought with them many traditions which helped them integrate into their new communities. Beautifully decorated eggs, known as pysanky, were created by women at Easter and distributed to their new friends and neighbours.

Students will discover some of the traditions and celebrations of the Ukrainian-Canadian community and will learn how to decorate an egg of their own using the Ukrainian wax-resist technique (Grades 5 and up).
