Master-class of Russian doll Matryoshka painting

Creative, fun and relaxing private master-class of Russian doll Maryoshka painting from a qualified artist, with a tea-party.
  • from 2500 RUB
  • 1,5 hours
  • from 1 pers.

Our master-class is an amazing opportunity to train your artistic skills and paint a beautiful doll Matryoshka with your own unique design. It is a very creative, fun and relaxing process, interesting for anyone – grownups and children. The hand-made Matryoshka will be a wonderful memento of your trip to St. Petersburg or an unusual present for people dear to you.

The name "matryoshka" (матрёшка), literally "little matron", is a diminutive form of Russian female first name "Matryona" (Матрёна) or "Matriosha". It is a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside another. The first Russian nesting doll set was made more than a century ago. Master-class includes one Matryoshka painting.

You may be sure that our qualified artists will heartily share their knowledge and help you to create the doll you imagine (you may bring a picture with the desired look as well). Simple or more complicated techniques will be used, depending on your painting skills. You will also learn about the history of the doll and traditions of its painting.

After master-class, while your doll is drying, enjoy a tea party with a tasty treat. Master-class takes place in "Izba" cafe, which interior is decorated with Russian national household items.

We also invite you to take part in other master classes where you will paint spoons, whistles and gingerbreads.
