Jaci Spuhler will be at the New Castle Branch Library today, March 6, to teach the traditional method of creating Ukrainian Eggs for Easter. This art form is as intricate as it is beautiful. It is believed to date back to Pagan times, and has been passed through the ages between family members, and most recently from Eastern European immigrants to the United States. Jaci will be teaching two classes, the first is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the second is from 2 to 5 p.m. Registration is required for the classes, and a maximum of 10 participants will be in each. The classes are for adults and teens in 9th grade and up. There is a $3 fee for materials. For more information or to register please call 984-2346.
