About the instructor:

Marika (Marichka) Galadza is co-founder of Ukrainian women’s art collective kosa kolektiv (kosakolektiv.com) and board member of folkcamp. She has over 10 years experience facilitating community craft and song workshops in Canada and internationally. Marichka was taught the ancient art of pysanka making from her mother as a child, and re-discovered the art form in her early twenties. Pysanka making is a part of her yearly spring ritual, a way to re-connect with her roots. She believes folk culture is for sharing, and enjoys revitalizing the practice through teaching others.
