The Randolph Arts Guild to offer Pysanky Egg Class with NC folk artists Karen & Grace McFettersPosted on 03/26/14
Asheboro, NC - The Randolph Arts Guild (RAG) announces additional pysanky egg dying courses. "Pysanky" (pronounced peh-sahn-keh) is a 2000 year old Ukrainian tradition of writing on eggs with wax. The vibrant coloring of the egg with imagery and design symbolizes good luck, posterity and the arrival of Spring. Mother/daughter team, Karen and Grace McFetters provide you with everything you need to make oval-esque masterpieces. All materials are included and you take home one completed egg, egg stand, and a full pysanky kit (so you can make them at home). Join us for your choice of three classes: Home-school students: Tues., April 8, 9 a.m.--12 p.m., $50 for RAG members, $55 for non-members; Adult Intro: Tues., Apr. 8, 5 p.m. -- 8p.m., $50 RAG members, $55 non-members; and “Advanced” Pysanky: 2 day class, Sat. -- Sun., Apr. 12 -- 13, 10 a.m -- until, $90 RAG members, $100 non-members.
