Quilt-inspired Pysanky
July 15, 2017–3:45 to 5:45 PM


Class fee $23 (includes $3 materials fee)

Combine the beauty of quilts with the techniques of pysanky!  You will learn simple ways to use color, designs, and even faux textures, to create quilts on eggs.  All skill levels are welcome.

Class fee covers a chicken egg marked with basic divisions plus written instructions for future reference.


Egg Mosaics

Class fee $46 (includes $6 materials fee)


Rescue your broken eggs by making a mosaic tile!  Class Part A (2 hours) will cover materials and methods, as you create your mosaic tile.  Class Part B (2 hours) is spent protecting your masterpiece, as you learn how to work with two-part epoxy.  Teresa will also cover ideas for framing and finishing the tiles.


Class fee covers mosaic baseboards and the epoxy as well as written instructions for future reference.  Please bring a 2-oz. tube of E-6000 glue and some broken pysanky to use in class.

    Dear Teresa,
    I am an Australia who has a passion for pysanky. My collection features the work of 28 artists from Ukraine, the USA and Canada, and numbers well in excess of 400 beautiful decorated eggs in both traditional and more contemporary designs. I have just discovered your website, and having worked my way through your gallery of designs, I am wondering if you would be prepared to recreate some of your exquisite eggs for my collection. I am not sure if you sell your work – I am hoping that you do! There are 4 or 5 eggs that I am particularly interested in.
    Kindest regards,
    Jennie Power

    I plan to be there, just got back from Yellowstone and I don’t think I have anything else that would interfere. Where is Oak Hills and I’ll check with my daughters when they get home to see if they are interested. I don’t have a lot of artistic talent but would like to learn more about this. Do I need to bring anything and is there any fee. Debbie Buchanan

  6. Hi Teresa!

    I was going to try to bring a pair of sisters, but only one of them is available. So the total count for me is 2 people:


    See you on the 21st!
