Russian Wooden Toys Register View Cart

Traditional hand-made and hand-painted wooden toys and miniature folk sculptures are an important window into the rich tapestry of Russian culture and history. The pieces reflect a unique craftsmanship, bright colors and traditional decorative elements such as floral and berry designs that are unique to each Russian village and represent aesthetic concepts perfected and passed down from generation to generation. Russian folk-art enthusiasts love the way these pieces preserve aspects of daily life from the past even in the face of progressing modern civilization. The workshop is open to adults, teens and families with children 6 and up. To stimulate creativity and imagination we will examine a beautiful collection of traditional Russian toy arts and crafts. Then, in the hands-on part of the program, students will paint an authentic Russian wooden toy or a piece of applied art, choosing from a variety of options. Throughout the workshop, students will be listening to traditional Russian music. MIN: 10 MAX: 50
