Porcelain sculpture and coloured majolica from Gzhel, mysterious ceramics from the Dagestani village of Balkhar, the bright painted world of Dymkovo toys, fantastic vessels with dragons and lions from Skopin - the art of ceramics in Russia in all the variety of techniques, forms and decorations will be shown to the participants of the programme during the "journey" through the ancient art centres. Many of those centers have been revived or opened to the public already in the twentieth century, thanks to the leading scientists, artists and craftsmen who have managed to preserve ancient craft traditions to the present day. Most of the works have been exhibited at international and Russian exhibitions, invariably arousing interest and admiration for their high artistic level. After the tour, all participants will be able to try their hand at being a crafts artist by proposing their own project of a ceramic product.
