Etched Pysanky-SOLD OUT
Friday, March 24, 2:00 – 5:30PM
This class is open to adults only.
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.



Advanced Pysanky-SOLD OUT
Saturday, March 25, 2:00 – 5:30PM
This class is open to adults only.
This class is designed for those who have created pysanky in the past and are looking for a chance to explore the art at a more independent level. If you have come to one of Karen and Sue’s beginning classes before and are looking to try patterns and designs with more complexity, this class is for you.
