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.
