Faberge Eggs: From Fine Art to Fine Craft
Storytelling and Workshop

Place: The Lane Memorial Library
2 Academy Ave, Hampton, NH 03842                                                  Saturday, April 15 from 1pm to 4pm

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. This workshop is open to adults, teens and families with children 6 and up. Participants will be 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. The program is free to attend and there is a materials fee of $5. per egg for anyone participating in the hands-on component of the program. This fee covers the cost of the wooden egg and stand as well as the paints and brushes for the workshop.

Presenter Marina Forbes is a lecturer, historian and award-winning artist, Master Iconographer (2013, 2014 and 2015 awards for Artistic Excellence granted by The National Endowment for the Arts and The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts) who has lectured extensively on Russian traditional arts, history and the rich tapestry of Russian culture. She is a speaker on Russian Arts, History and Culture with the NH Humanities Council. Each year, Marina leads cultural tours to Russia where she regularly updates her scholarship.

Board of the Friends of the Lane Memorial Library Ask for Your Support

We the board of directors of the Friends of the Lane Memorial Library ask for your support for Town Warrant article #29 for the purchase and installation of three new large windows on the town hall side of the Children’s Room in the library. These windows will not only provide more fresh air and light but also an all important emergency exit directly from the Children’s Room. The Friends have worked hard to provide funding for ongoing educational and entertainment programs that draw Hampton’s families and their children to the Lane. Our library is a great community resource and needs this updating to continue to attract, protect and hold its users.

The Selectman voted to recommend this warrant article and we ask that you also support this worthwhile and overdue renovation when you vote at town elections on March 14, 2017
