Try-it Classes - Adults

“I get so much out of coming to class with you. You teach us to approach our work fearlessly! You encourage us, invite us to try new things, give us many options including looking at our work differently in order to see better where we want to go with it. ”.

A new selection of one or two time short workshops for adults and now kids, too!! We offer a quick exposure to various fine arts and hand crafts without your having to commit to a full semester of classes. A great opportunity to hone skills or learn something totally new! Bring a friend, bring your book club, even bring your spouse!

UKRANIAN EGG WORKSHOP

Bring your friends for a great day or night out….super fun AND a gorgeous piece of handcraft culture! This workshop is led by Moki Kokoris, master of fine arts, internationally recognized calligrapher and superb creator of Ukrainian Eggs!

Moki will demonstrate how to create a psyanka, the traditional egg, and then have you create one of your very own. Psyanka means to write…each egg tells a story depending on the colors, designs and glyph you use. Moki says it is believed by many that the eggs traditionally hold the power of magic! Come and learn the significance of folk art while you create a family heirloom.

Other dates and times may be arranged for groups of 6 and more. Scout troops welcome (at reduced pricing) to schedule sessions as well. Please inquire.
