Artist to describe how she makes Ukranian Easter eggs
BRISTOL — Just in time for Easter, Theresa Somerset of Essex Junction will be at Art on Main in Bristol on Saturday, March 22, from noon to 2 p.m. to demonstrate a painting technique that turns simple eggs into elaborate works of art.
These painted eggs — yes, they are real — are created in keeping with an ancient Ukrainian technique called pysanka, which means “to write on.” The method is wax-resist, much like batik, used with intensely colored dyes.
Those attending the demonstration can meet the artist and watch as her creations take shape and all the wax is melted off to reveal the final complex design.
This event is free and family-friendly. Art on Main is at 25 Main St. For more information, call 453-4032, email [email protected], or find ArtonMainVT on Facebook.
