Amy Pierce

Amy Pierce has always enjoyed exploring her spirituality through crafts. She is a quilter, seamstress, and Pysanki artist who delights in incorporating pagan symbology into her projects. She especially enjoys learning about traditional crafts and traditions from around the world. Amy has a degree in Anthropology from Michigan State University and has won several awards for her Pysanki work. She is also the creator of the Lansing Pagan Village banner. Amy has been making Pysanki for over fourteen years, and for the last six years has put on Ostara pyskanky workshops for her friends and local pagan community.


Pysanki (also Pysanky or Pysanka) is a Ukrainian craft that predates Christianity in the region and reflects ancient myths in which the egg symbolizes life, the sun, and the universe. It is the art of making beautiful and intricately dyed eggs by drawing on them using a wax resist method. This workshop will teach you not only how to create your own Pysanki eggs, but will also include discussion on their uses in magick and ritual.

Workshop participants will take home a completed Pysanki project and instructions. All necessary workshop supplies will be provided but kits will be available for $5-$10 for those who would like to try this at home.
