12-12-2021 - Symbolism and Ancestral Codes of Ukrainian Patternwork


We're delighted to host Anka Lavriv for another deep dive into ancient symbolism and ancestral codes of patternwork used in Ukrainian needlepoint and Pysanka Egg traditions. This unique patternwork is not only an esthetic embellishment, but a complex coding system and a form of generational and ancestral storytelling. In this workshop, we will look at history, intention of actual Ukrainian talismanic symbols, discuss their possible use in modern life, and use our newfound knowledge of their symbology to craft our own personal sigils.

 

Because we'll be crafting our own sigils, make sure to bring along a pencil, pen, or paint and a paintbrush!

 

This is a LIVE digital class. A recording will be emailed to you after class that you can re-watch for 1 week! We will send more details shortly before the class.
