HOMEART #3 – Bejewelled Eggs!

Make your own Bejeweled Eggs this Easter weekend!

Between 1885 – 1917 the House of Faberge produced exquisite jewelled eggs for the Tsars of Russia.

This Easter, Quay Arts is inviting you to create and share your own blinged-up eggs which we’ll put up in an online albumen.

Assuming you don’t have precious metals, minerals and gemstones or a team of master craftspeople to hand, the following pointers might give you some ideas.

Make abstract marks on a piece of thick key paper with watercolour, ink, paint. Once dry, cut out an egg shape.

Use shaped die-cutters, hole punches, stickers and drawing materials to decorate and develop the surface of your egg base.

Cut out and glue on paper swag / filigree for a Faberge feel. Add details with metallic markers / paint. Enhance with stick-on-gems.

Et Voila!


Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight?

However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
