Saturday, May 16, 2015 from 5 to 9 PM
Village Park, Rancho Cordova
Let the world come to you with lots of fun displays, performances and food from many different countries at this kid-friendly iFest 2015 . I’ll be there demonstrating how to create pysanky so be sure to stop by and say hi.
More details here.
I’m going to summer camp again! This year’s Pysanky USA Retreat in Pennsylvania promises to be bigger and better than ever. I’ll be teaching a couple of classes and taking a few from other teachers but more importantly I’ll get to reconnect with “egging friends” from across the country. For five days the outside world falls away as I explore new ideas, learn new techniques, and catch up with others who share my love of pysanky. I can hardly wait!
Sound interesting? This event is a great place for all skill levels, from “I’ve never dyed an egg before” to “I’ve been creating these eggs for 30 years.” If you want to join the fun, here’s the link for more details.
