I was on this master-class with kids (16 and 8 years old) and we all liked it very much. Some kind of meditation :)

I spent good time to make matryoshka dolls. Elena helped me choosing color and painting on dolls, thus I could make beautiful dolls:) It took about three and half hour for three dolls and I was happy to spend my last day in St Petersburg.
