Egg artists show off skills in Everett

Aside from eating eggs year-round, people can look forward to coloring and then hiding them at Easter. But those purposes are mostly limited to chicken eggs.

Egg Artist Guild of Washington members, on the other hand, pushes the carton to include goose, emu, ostrich, quail, duck and other fowl, to make contributions to art.

The artists decorate the eggshells Faberge-style, as was done by Russian goldsmith Carl Faberge, or they use pysanky, a wax-resist method.

The guild will show samples of their eggs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Holiday Inn, 3105 Pine St., Everett. Artists’ demonstrations and classes are planned.

Admission is $5. For details, call 360-629-3511.
