Friday Egg: Like Holding Hands

Scarf design batiked eggshell, Asian kimono-inspired design

It's a miracle! A Friday Egg! I was so excited about this egg that I really wanted to share it. It's been a while, hasn't it?  This lovely spring goose egg has traditional geometry with and Asian-inspired floral design. I want to wear this egg!

The name of the egg is "Like Holding Hands" because if the way the two scarves or rugs wrap around the egg, interlocking like two hands.

I hope you enjoy it!

Easter Workshops!

Eight sided star motif Pysanky egg

This Spring workshop will concentrate on teaching you how to create your own beautiful heirloom-quality Pysanky eggs using traditional methods of waxing and dyeing just in time for Easter!  I will have the usual Easter colors: pinks, greens, purples and oranges, but feel free to create the ornament that suits your personal holiday preference with my large selection of aniline dyes.

You will leave the workshop with at least one completed Pysanky eggshell, but most likely you will have time to complete two eggs.  I will supply all beeswax, dyes, tools and blown eggs to work on in class.
* If a class doesn't "make", I will give you the option of taking the other scheduled workshop or I will refund your money.  You will be notified within one week of the workshop of any changes.
* We will be working with carbon-darkened beeswax and aniline dyes, both of which stain, so please wear art clothes or bring a smock/apron.
