Direct from Kyiv: Ukrainian Egg Decorating
with Vera Sukhorukova

About the Program

Vera Sukhorukova lives in the small town of Boyarka, southwest of Kyiv, Ukraine. Since childhood, she has been engaged in traditional Ukrainian crafts, including several styles of embroidery, the “Petrykivka” style of folk painting, beadweaving, and more. Her family has a tradition of making krashanki (colored eggs) and pysanki (eggs decorated with patterns and painting) for Easter. Vera learned to make krashanki from her grandmother, and from her mother she learned the art of making pysanky.

In this program, Vera gives us the story of psyanky – the traditions, the meanings, how they are created, and a demonstration of a simple egg decoration technique.
