Matryoshka Painting Class in St Petersburg
Local artist gives a class of Matryoshka painting for travelers
Russia has always been associated with three things: Matryoshka Doll, Samovars, and Russian Soul. Matryoshka Painting Class combines them all!
- Take a tour to a local artist
- Make your own Matryoshka and paint it the way you like
- Taste Russian tea from Samovar
- Learn more about local culture
The tour starts with a hotel pickup up or cruise port meeting (if you are a cruise traveler). Driving to the master class studio our local guide will give you a brief overview of Russian culture and traditional holidays. You will see how vast and diverse our culture is.
As soon as you get to the studio, a local artist will teach you how to make Matryoshkas and give you a tour of his own works of art. It is an exciting journey in the world of exotic local painting and craft. Matryoshka is only one of the Russian traditional dolls. Our country is also famous for delicate birch tree caskets, icons and cutlery.
While making your own doll you will have a chance to taste Russian tea – another fun experience. Russian tea is usually a mixture of local herbs including oregano and melissa.
Finally, when you heard the story of Russian art, drank a cup of tea with traditional snacks and made your own doll, it’s time to take Matreshka home and show it to your friends and family.
