Explore the traditional art of decorating eggs in the Ukrainian style known as Pysanky. The wax-resist process, similar to batik, uses a simple tool to apply wax to the shell of a fresh chicken egg, followed by multiple layers of colorful dyes. When the pattern is complete the wax is removed to reveal a beautiful design. Join Brandy and discover the magic of creating these small works of art. Learn about the history of this medium, see examples of her eggs.

A portion of the class fee will be donated in support of the refugees of Ukraine. 


Brandy Wheeler has a degree in Visual Art from Albion College, and has worked in the creative field for over 25 years. She took up the art of Pysanky at the age of 12 to carry on the traditions of her Ukrainian great-grandmother. Each Easter she creates eggs to continue the legacy of the art form, and shares them with friends and family. Last spring, when the war began, Brandy chose to spread the joy of this art form by teaching classes, and raised over $1,500 for the refugees of Ukraine. 


Brandy is a teacher by nature, an entrepreneur by trade and an artist at heart. She is co-owner and the creative director at Visitors Media, and founder of Traverse Traveler, an advertising platform for showcasing local restaurants and attractions to visitors staying in area hotels.
