A driver picked us up at our apartment and took us to Тетяна's apartment. There she told us the history of the pysanka egg painting, based on covering the egg with wax and then immersing it on different colorants. She showed us how to do it and then we could choose a pattern that the we would like to reproduce by ourselves. We had so much fun getting to paint the eggs in that old Ukrainian technique and we were proud of the result. This workshop was one of the highlights of our trip to Kiev and we recommend it to everyone trying to experience a real Ukrainian tradition.

Fun artistic adventure.
My daughter found this online and we decided to try it since it was Easter Week during our vacation to Kiev. Very skeptical when arriving at the apartment. After two minutes we were very comfortable and learned a bit of this amazing art. Very informative and interactive. Kids and adults loved it. The drivers were also amazing.
Very nice, I enjoyed my time!
I would recommend this activity. The guide and the host were both fantastic.

Great tour
We had a great trip! Guide was very knowledgeable.
Fantastic!
My husband and I had such a great time in this cooking class. Snezhana picked us up and took us to her mother where we made borsch and varenyky. Wherever we travel we always try to find cooking classes, but this was the first time we had one in someone’s home. Thank you for a great time!
Highly recommended
We had fun cooking borsch and varenyky in a typical Ukrainian apartment, guided by the Mom and the Daughter and supervised by Tobi.

Do not eat a couple of days before attending the class:-)
