Service Description

Karen will patiently take you through the process of "Writing Psanka" These beautiful traditional Ukranian Psanky Easter Eggs are a Springtime favorite and a joy to create. We recommend that you learn the skill first, then introduce it to your children. It is a very peaceful art form using bees wax, a candle flame, a kishka tool, dyes and fresh, clean eggs in a resist pattern to make these gorgeous patterns and colors. A Ukranian tradition dating back to ancient times, they are symbolic of faith and culture. Using written patterns applied with wax and then dipping in the richest, food-safe dyes, you will create these wonders. You can add to your collection every year, give them as gifts and present them to loved ones creating your own traditions. Directions to NBACE ~ Studio 260 It's a huge building 3rd and 1st floor are pretty much finished, but the 2nd floor is a rough work in progress, so please forgive our appearance as construction is constantly happening, so unpainted walls, unfinished floors, lots of plaster dust is the norm these days. The closest entrance to the studio is by way of door #4 ~ There is no really clear TAH DAH entrance there, but you will see a big white #4 painted on the building, it is 101 W. Rodney French Blvd. and it will say ARTISAN CENTER over the door. It is on the opposite end of the building from the main entrance. Try and park on that end of the building, side streets are a good bet. There are yellow and turquoise bricks around the door, enter there, go up the stairs and go right through the door with no handle, then down to the very end of the hall past all the orange chairs, go RIGHT at end of hall, we are the last door on the right. You can get to the studio from the main entrance, and the parking is easier, but it's a long walk. Take elevator to 2nd floor go right out of elevator and follow signs to Artisan Center. It is essentially 3 long hallways, when you get to the orange chairs, go down the final hall, (it's Picasso Drive)
