You will be guided through all the steps of transforming a plain egg into a work of art. Adult and/or teen students will learn the age old Ukrainian method of Pysanky, decorating eggshells. We will apply a series of melted beeswax and dyes to create traditional star patterns. When complete, the wax is melted off, revealing the vivid colors. Students will have the option of turning their Pysanky into a unique Seasonal ornaments.

Materials (eggs, stylus, dyes, wax…) and instruction will be provided to make one or two Pysanky.
Kits will also be available for purchase, so that students can continue to make Pysanky and wax-resist batik-style eggs at home, for all seasons and occasions.

Workshop $30  + $10 material fee to instructor

Basia  has been writing Pysanky for over four decades, gathering in the kitchen during Lent to carry on the Ukrainian tradition.
She finds the creation process very soothing and meditative, and look forward to the moment of melting off the wax to reveal the design.
She writes pysanky with traditional patterns, but also enjoys creating egg art with fresh interpretations and original designs (like my beach-inspired seashell patterns).

They make great gifts, especially to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, new home, or just to share with someone special.

Come learn how to make beautiful fine silver jewelry using a truly amazing material called Precious Metal Clay (PMC).

PMC Rings: May 6th

PMC’s clay body is made up of microscopic particles of metal held together by an organic binder and water. When fired at specific temperatures, the binder and water burn off allowing the silver particles to fuse into SOLID metal. PMC can be easily sculpted or molded and impressed with textures and stamps. Firing and polishing of student’s pieces will be done during class. Students will leave this one day workshop with several of their own one-of-a-kind silver creations.

Wendy Schuster is a PMC artist and instructor who has been working with PMC since first hearing about it 15 years ago. She has taught beginning, advanced, and certification classes at several schools and businesses, as well as in her home studio, in Reading, PA. She is a juried artisan at the state and local levels and has 22 years of design experience in her professional life.
