From 18 to 20 August, the VIII International Pottery Festival will be held in Skopin. The program is planned to be extensive and varied. One of the main and traditional events is the international exhibition of pottery, which will be held in the lobby of the Lenin Palace of Culture. The Children’s Art School will host an exhibition “Pottery – the language of friendship.” Master classes for tourists and all comers have become a good tradition of the festival. They will be held at the Center for Folk Arts and Crafts and at the Art Ceramics Factory, which will provide 15 pottery wheels.

Head of the city department of culture and tourism Marina Retyunskaya:

“We are also preparing many new products for the festival. One of them is a city tour, where the audience will be participants in the performance at the same time. They will meet with famous historical figures. I won’t reveal the details, but it will be interesting. The city park will host the quest game “Apprentices of Demka Kireev”. In the local history museum, for the first time, masters from the city of Bogorodsk, Nizhny Novgorod Region, will show an exposition of their works. We also organize an excursion to the factory of artistic ceramics. This was not the case at the last festival, as the factory was not in the best condition. Now, despite the difficulties, it will become one of the venues of the festival.”

Marina Evgenievna said that they would try to make the opening and closing of the festival memorable. The best bands of the Ryazan region were invited to the opening, and the cover band “Karusel-Bend” will close the festive program.

Guests from Belarus, Dagestan, the Nizhny Novgorod region, the Kuban and other places are waiting for the festival. Participants have already received 50 adult applications and 11 children’s applications. And the applications keep coming in.

Age limit for festival guests 0+.
