Where: The Inn assisted living at Golden View
Residents of our assisted living and members of the public are invited to join us for a storytelling and hands-on painting workshop on Faberge eggs with award-winning artist Marina Forbes. The workshop is open to the whole family: adults, teens and children ages 6 and up. It’s 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 collections at the Faberge Museum at the Shuvalov Palace in St. Petersburg, the Kremlin Armory Museum in Moscow and other world famous museums and private collectors around the world, 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.
There is a materials fee for anyone participating in the hands-on component of the program. This $10 fee covers the cost of the wooden egg and stand as well as the use of paints for painting on wood and brushes for the workshop. Golden View assisted living residents may paint an egg for free. Those who wish to simply listen to the storytelling and not paint an egg, may do so for free.
Please RSVP with Becky at 603-677-4194. If you leave a message, please specify whether or not you will be painting an egg.
