HISTORIC PYSANKY CLASS: Sunday, September 25
The art of Pysankartsvo, dyeing eggs as you create intricate designs with beeswax, will be taught in a special four-hour workshop on Sunday, September 25, from 1-5 p.m. This decorative craft started in the Ukraine, where the colorful eggs were known as Pysanky, and came to Texas in the 1800s with European immigrants who dyed eggs at Easter as part of their celebration.
Reservations are required for this amazing how-to instruction by noted Pysanky artist Martha Schreffler. Participants will leave with one or more decorated eggs ready for display, plus instructions on how to do more, after stepping back in time for an afternoon of 1800s fun. Class is fun for parents and children 13 and up.
Cost is $40 per person. All materials are provided. Class size is limited. Registration required at least one week in advance of the class. Kits to make eggs at home will be available for purchase, for those who want to continue honing their skills later. Register and pay below to get your spot now.
This is one of those history lessons that you'll be talking about for years, with a take-home souvenir to show your friends and family. Plan to join us for the fun.
