Faberge Eggs: From Fine Art to Fine Craft:Storytelling and Workshop Marina Forbes, Russian Artist
Traditional Russian artist and lecturer, Marina Forbes, will offer a unique workshop on the rich Russian folk tradition of Russian Easter Egg painting. The workshop is scheduled at the Bethlehem Public Library in Bethlehem, NH (2155 Main St, Bethlehem, NH 03574) on Saturday, April 5th from 10am to 1pm and is open to adults and families with children age 6 and up. It is a great opportunity for adults and families to work together and learn about Russian crafts and culture. This unique program combines a beautifully illustrated presentation on the life and remarkable work of Russian master jeweled egg artist, Peter Carl Faberge, with a hands-on workshop where participants will learn how to render a variety of delightful images on wooden eggs. Inspired by a spectacular photo-tour of the Faberge collection at the Constantine Palace in St. Petersburg and the Marina's collection of whimsical Easter eggs, program participants will have a unique opportunity to use their creativity and imagination to produce their own authentic pieces of collectible folk art on wood. Traditional Russian painting techniques and floral and berry designs are introduced. Throughout the workshop portion of the program, participants will be listening to traditional Russian music.
