We invite children and their parents to takes part in various master classes. During a master class in making felt boots (valenki) you will not only enjoy the process of making a pair of tiny felt boots, but will also learn about the history of felt footware. You can decorate the New Year’s Tree with these tiny valenki or use them as a breloque. Children can put the tiny felt boots on the feet of their dolls.

If you like to paint, we invite you to take part in a master class entitled Woolen Watercolour. You will learn about the local traditions of wool and felt treatment, will learn to create paintings with the use of felt fibers and create your own masterpiece to take home with you.

Each master class lasts 1-1.5 hours and costs 500 rubles.

Every day we offer you to attend classes in painting, floristics, printing patterns on cloth, plaiting belts. The cost of these master classes equals the cost of the entrance tickets to the museum exhibitions and comprises 50 rubles for children and 150 rubles for adults.
