2:00 PM-5:30 AM
This class is open to adults only.
Registration deadline: Friday, March 17.
Just in time for Easter, explore the art, symbolism and joy in creating pysanky, traditional Ukrainian Easter eggs. Experienced instructors Karen Brouillette and Susan Dow have taught many pysanky workshops together throughout New England. All materials are provided. Please bring your own apron.
In the etched egg pysanky class students will create wax designs on the egg in the traditional manner; however, once eggs have their wax designs, the egg will be dipped in a chemical bath that will eat away the egg shell that is not covered in wax, leaving an etched finish. The results are amazing! This class is for both beginners and those with experience.
