Ukrainian Easter Eggs with Shannon Wallis

Join us at the League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery will be
offering two Ukrainian Easter egg classes with juried artist Shannon Wallis on Saturday, March
25th, 2023 the class is from 9 am – 12:30 pm.
Learn the ancient Ukrainian Easter egg art of pysanky. Since pagan times, Ukrainians have
decorated eggs to welcome spring. In this hands-on class you will learn how to divide a chicken
egg, use hot beeswax applied with a kistka funnel to draw on the egg over a succession of aniline
dyes, and blow out the egg to create a beautiful, one of a kind keepsake.
About Shannon:
Shannon is a former elementary school art and nursery school teacher who has been writing
pysanky in Vermont since 1994 when she learned the technique from another art teacher.
Shannon is delighted to be teaching again at the Meredith Fine Craft Gallery. While Shannon has
no Ukrainian or Eastern European ancestry, she has fallen in love with pysanky as an art form.
Shannon finds both the traditional and modern designs enticing, especially when they involve
geometry. Shannon teaches pysanky in her home studio, on Zoom, at various pysanky retreats,
and is delighted to be teaching again at Catskills Pysanky Workshop Shannon won the People's
Choice Award in the Classic category in the first annual International Pysanka Exhibition at the
Ukrainian Museum of Canada, Ontario Branch in June 2019. She is a juried member of the
League of NH Craftsmen in mixed media and sells her pysanky and batik eggs online and at
various galleries, craft shows and farmers markets. Besides being an egg artist, Shannon is a wife
and a mother of two young adults.
