    Event Description:
    Meredith, NH - The League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery will be offering a Ukranian Egg workshop with League-juried artist, Shannon Wallis on Saturday, April 6, 2019 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, a former elementary school art and nursery school teacher, 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. Shannon finds both the traditional and modern designs enticing, especially when they involve geometry. She has recently become a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen in mixed media. Besides being an egg artist, Shannon is a potter and a mother of two teenagers. Tuition is $38.00 per student. There is an additional materials fee of $10.00. Students 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. Space is limited to 8 students and pre-registration is required.
