Traditional Matryoshka Nested Doll Making: From Russia to New England
~~~December 4, 2013 ~ 7:00 PM~~~
JD Blake School/Amsden Auditorium ~ 32 Crescent Street,
This beautifully illustrated interactive presentation by Marina Forbes will feature the history of Matryoshka nested doll making in Russia. Using a fully illustrated show and numerous exhibits, including examples of her own work and from her extensive collection, Forbes will examine the tapestry of the rich folk tradition and symbolism of the doll’s appearance and the interesting link between doll making and other traditional Russian art forms. There will be a quick stop at the 1900 World Fair in Paris that made Russian nested dolls and Fabergé eggs famous followed by an exciting illustrated tour of a working doll-making factory in rural Russia, depicting the various stages in the doll making process. The presentation will conclude with a glorious show of hundreds of examples of the finest Matryoshka artwork available in Russia.
This program was made possible through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council. For more information, please call the library at 934-9712.

The library’s Summer Reading Program is in full swing! Last week the kids enjoyed an awesome Rocks & Minerals program, where they learned that pencils, chalk, baby powder, and even toothpaste are made from rock! This week we’ve been using rocks and minerals to create beautiful works of art. Next week we’ll visit with an array of animals as we discover the mysterious world under our toes!
Check out the SRP page for a complete schedule of programs and activities, and join us as we explore all things under the surface!
