Since launching this project, I have been asked to help host Pysanky For Peace gatherings to teach the art of Ukrainian pysanky writing. To hopefully streamline the questions I have received, and to make it easier to consider booking a private or public workshop or Pysanky Party – please be sure to check out the information below. If you are interested in booking me for a workshop – whether in person or online – please use the form on the contact page to connect with me. I also plan, in the near future to create a list by state/province of pysanky teachers who are interested in partnering with this project to host workshops as well – if you are a teacher and interested in hosting pysanky workshops to help support this project and the causes we are raising funds for – please use the form to contact me as well to start a conversation. Many thanks!

I am more than happy and willing to travel to teach the Ukrainian art of pysanky writing.
