Russian crafts: Fedoskino Lacquer Miniature Tour

join!

19.11.2017
We invite you to learn more about Fedoskino lacquer miniature industry which is one of the oldest one in Russia as well as purchase some souvenirs which might be a great gift for upcoming Christmas.
Fedoskino miniature is a traditional Russian lacquer miniature painting on papier-mache, named after its original center Fedoskino, an old village near Moscow widely known from the late 18th century. The contemporary Fedoskino painting preserves the typical features of Russian folk art.


Fedoskino miniature became very famous in the second half of the 19th century, and the works of that time are known as 'lukutins', named after the merchants Lukutins, who owned the Fedoskino factory. 
The use of oil paint, typically applied in many layers, is a distinctive feature of a Fedoskino miniature, as well as the use of mother-of-pearl, pure gold or silver leaves under segments of the background which create the effect of a shimmering glow or silvery sparkle. 

During the tour you will 
- visit the Soviet factory where Fedoskino lacquer boxes are made and learn about the challenges they face
- take a tour to the museum of Russian national crafts where you will paint your own broche in Fedoskino style.
-enjoy the tea break with pancakes 
-visit Nadezhda Strelkina's studio "Fairy world" ( She is a well know Fedoskino fantasy artist and a winner of Bradford Exchange award and Fedoskino school of art).
