Fresh for 2021
We welcome in the new year with renewed hope and joy. We will be open to the public very shortly, just in time for all your Easter and pysanky needs!
Threaded in History
The UMC was born from a dream to establish a place, by and through which Ukrainian heritage and Ukrainian culture could thrive. It would be a place where visitors would learn about Ukrainians and Ukrainian Canadians, and more importantly, learn and understand Ukrainian customs and traditions and their impact on the global community.
Taking into account the strong cultural prejudice against Ukrainian Canadians in the 1930’s, that dream was quite bold.
Time for Pysanka Workshops!
When the promises of Spring are just on the horizon, that also means it’s time for Easter and traditions we hold dear. Whether this is your first time or hundredth time, each pysanka you make will be unique and you can write out ages old symbols of wishes and hopes for the upcoming season.
This year, as with everything else, the Easter holidays may be a bit different, but just like pioneers who adapted to a changing world and it’s events, we will adapt and change too. The comfort they brought were in the forms of traditions that brought them closer to their roots, and we hope this tradition of dyes, beeswax, and eggs brings a bit of joy your way and reconnect you to whatever roots you have growing.
