Name of Teacher: Charlene Randall
Email: randallchar@hotmail.com
Class times: Year-round; 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Ages taught: 9+ (I LOVE teaching kids & teens!)
Price: Email to ask
Info: I teach groups of up to 15 at your southwest MI or northwest IN location (within a certain radius of my home). Willing to travel to some farther locations in MI, IN, and northwestern IL, especially in the Summertime. Email me for more info. I have made pysanky for 20+ years, and currently teach it at our local college. My teaching style encourages individual creativity and freedom (NOT having everyone do the exact same design, as some teachers do). I have taught people of all ages and stages. My philosophy is about having FUN with this amazing art form! I also cater to church groups, teaching the history, background and Christian symbolism of Ukrainian pysanky. I encourage multi-generational participation: Grandmas & grandkids, Moms & children, Aunties & nieces, etc. This is a wonderful way to bring families together! I prefer teaching on Saturdays, but I am sometimes available in the daytime (btwn 10am-1pm) or evenings (6-10pm) at your venue in SW MI or NW IN. Venues for this class are typically in a home or a church. Need sturdy tables & chairs, and access to electrical outlets, a sink, and a restroom. I will provide good craft lighting if the facility does not have that.
