Easter gardens, 2024 – 6

Posted on by royvickery |

Easter garden in St Mary’s Anglican Church, Warwick: ‘This year’s Easter Garden are inspired by Ukrainian pysanky – ornate eggs that people in Ukraine give to each other at Easter.  Symbols are ‘written’ on the shell with candle wax before dipping the egg in dye.  More symbols are added and different dyes applied.  The wax is then rubbed off to reveal the final intricate design.  Each symbol and colour has a meaning. Many Christians pray as they write and dye their pysanky.  It takes a long time to create a pysanky in this way, so the Sunday School children used felt-tips!’
