The kids will hear the story of how Easter eggs, the traditional gift of that holiday, first appeared and what they mean. They’ll also find out about the traditions of Easter egg decorations and the techniques the Fabergé firm’s artisans used when making gifts for the Russian empresses.
At the end of the tour, the kids will take part in two master classes: a culinary one in which they'll decorate pryaniki, a traditional Russian sweet treat, and one in which they'll decorate wooden eggs.
Master class description:
During the culinary master class, we'll decorate the pryaniki with icing, edible pearls and other ornamental elements. During the egg-painting master class, the kids will be able to use their imaginations by drawing their own design on paper and then applying it to create their own Easter masterpiece based on Fabergé Museum's collection.
An up-to-date schedule of the master classes is available at the Museum's ticket office on the day. The rules for attending Fabergé Museum's programs for children can be found here.
