Traditional Russian artist and lecture, Marina Forbes, will offer a unique studio workshop on the rich Russian folk tradition of Winter Holiday Celebration and Palekh Troika painting.Palekh lacquer miniature painting goes back to the 17th century and features exceptional details painted with luminous Russian egg tempera paints on a black lacquered background with the intricate gold leaf application. The workshop involves the creation of a unique gift of a beautiful Troika and an exploration of traditional Russian Palekh painting techniques!

The workshop is open to adults, teens and families with children 6 and up.  It is a great opportunity for adults and families to work together to learn about Russian crafts and culture.
