Pysansky Egg Class with Shannon Wallis at The League of NH Craftsmendith Fine Arts

March 21, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

The League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery will be offering a Ukrainian Pysanky Egg workshop with League-juried artist, Shannon Wallis on Saturday, March 21, 2020, a morning class from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM, and an afternoon class from 1:30 PM to 5:00 PM.

Learn the ancient Ukrainian Easter egg art of pysanky. Since pagan times, Ukrainians have decorated eggs to welcome spring. In this class you will learn how to divide an egg, use hot beeswax applied with a kistky funnel to draw on the egg over a succession of aniline dyes, and create a beautiful, one of a kind egg.

Shannon Wallis has been writing pysanky in Vermont since 1994 when she learned the technique from another art teacher. While Shannon has no Ukrainian ancestry, she has fallen in love with pysanky as an art form.

Tuition is $40.00 per student. There is an additional materials fee of $10.00Students are asked to bring the following: Reading glasses if needed and clothes you wouldn’t mind being stained. You can also feel free to bring water and a personal snack if you wish.  Shannon will provide: one egg pre-drawn with divisions, egg pad, kistkas, stands, dyes, beeswax, tape measures, pencils, candles, paper towels, egg blower, gloves, spray gloss, gold finding, handouts and a safe transportation method for your masterpiece.
