St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church will hold the fifth annual Pysanky making class on March 10 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the church’s Spurling Hall.  Artists Barbara Wampole and Olga Kaczmar will be the instructors.

Psyanky (plural of psyanka) are Ukrainian Easter eggs using the wax and dye method. Mothers customarily passed on this ancient tradition to daughters a few weeks prior to Easter. This class is free and open to all. Bring a dozen or half-dozen raw, room-temperature eggs. (The wax won’t adhere to chilled eggs.) Utensils and tools for applying the wax will be provided and those who have their own may bring them. Please phone in reservations to 661-259-7307 since the class was very popular last year and there is limited seating.

logo-ststephensThe class is only open to adults – no children, since the dyes are toxic. Topics covered in the class include: tool demonstration, pencil & dye explanation, the waxing process, dying the egg, and removing the wax.

All crafty persons are welcome to come. St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church is located at 24901 Orchard Village Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91355.

I discovered, of course, that despite what seemed to be huge differences in religion, culture, class, there were also so many similarities between myself and many of the Egyptians I met. I learned of the diversity of Islam and how it is practiced and lived in so many ways, just like Christianity is in the United States.

I look at the stats for the Chiquita Canyon Landfill and see that seldom does it operate at daily or weekly capacity. Do we need an expansion? Is something else going on? Is Sunshine Canyon Landfill just south of the SCV almost full?
