Event Info

Again this year, The Critical Mass, LLC, the Made in ALX store and local Ukrainian-American artists are throwing a Pysanky Party — and partnering on a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization Razom for Ukraine.

The free event, from 5 – 7 p.m. this Sunday, Feb. 25 at Made in ALX (533 Montgomery St. in Old Town North), is part of the annual tradition.

Admission is free (but please RSVP). Guests will get to see new pysanky, meet the local artists, and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and drinks.

What are Pysanky?

Pysanky (pronounced PIH-san-kih; singular form is pysanka) are Ukrainian Easter eggs, elaborately decorated in the batik (wax-resist) method. This art has been passed down through generations of Ukrainians and they are traditionally made during Lent to be given as gifts to friends and family.

More than half of all pysanky sales will benefit Razom for Ukraine at Made in ALX through the end of March. Plus, made in ALX will also donate 10% of all other sales during the Feb. 25 to the organization.
