Teaching Pysankarstvo:



While you could simply put out supplies and let your students start writing pysanky after a brief “how to” talk, I like to present some background material along with the technical instructions. To me, pysankarstvo is not just a craft, like rubber band bracelets or decoupage, but a folk tradition with a long history.  A bit about that should be included in any class.


Didactic: what should you discuss with the students before beginning work on pysanky?  Some ideas for lesson plans.

Technical: audiovisual aids in teaching pysankarstvo.

Demonstration: showing students how to make a pysanka.

Pattern sheets:  are they necessary?  Which ones should you use?

Traditional designs
