Custom Souvenir
, Mar 2020
This was such a wonderful opportunity for a truly custom souvenir of my trip to Russia. I was concerned that mine would turn out so poorly that I would be ashamed, but I have it happily sitting on my counter at home. We received so much help and great suggestions. Don't pass up this chance for a unique souvenir of your trip.
Fun with friends

A nice a fun experience. Went there with friends. We enjoyed the class and had a nice handmade Russian souvenir at the end.
Great Fun

This is a really fun time. You can either make one large doll or for the Master Class you get to do three nesting dolls. The instructor is there for instruction all along the way and to help correct mistakes. The class takes about two hours but we took about three hours to do our three dolls. We never felt hurried. In the end they apply a sealer to your dolls and you get to take them with you. Instead of buying your dolls for a story make your dolls.
Wonderful experience! Elena was...

Wonderful experience! Elena was extremely professional and kind in her explanations. She encouraged me to create a truly unique set of matryoshka, and she carefully corrected my mistakes. I have a happy memory and a lovely souvenir of St Petersburg, Russia! I painted three matryoshka and they took a full three hours to complete. I would recommend the Museum of Matryoshka class to all my friends!
