Arts and Artisans Virtual Fair 2020

Saturday, August 15, 2020

Plans are underway for an online Lovell Arts & Artisans Fair this year. Basically, for any eggs you order from me on August 15, I make a donation to the Charlotte Hobbs Library, just like I would at an in-person show.

Details, when they become available, will be at the Arts & Artisans website and Facebook page. (As of July 16, those details aren’t up yet.) Look for artist profiles and links to everyone’s online shops, as well as special events on the day of the Fair.


Decorate a Ukrainian-Style Pysanka Egg

Postponed until Sometime Later
(The Library is closed.)

Friday, March 27, 2020
1:00 – 4:00 pm

Charlotte Hobbs Library, Lovell, Maine

Decorate your own holiday egg in the distinctive Ukrainian pysanka style, using wax-resist method on a real egg. Draw lines of beeswax on your egg with a traditional waxing tool, dip the egg in dye, and watch your pattern appear. The finished eggs will be varnished and hollowed, creating a permanent keepsake. 

Eggs made by first-time students

Many students who at first worried that “they wouldn’t be able to do it” are still gushing about the beautiful egg they made in class!

Call  Charlotte Hobbs Library  (207) 925-3177  to register
Class space is limited. This class has always filled up.
No fee for this class.

The intermediate class session is geared to people who have some previous experience making  pysanky.  We will be doing a different, more complex design than the beginner class.
