Museum of Wooden Spoon to Appear in Nizhniy Novgorod Region

An original museum-workshop of the wooden spoon and folk household will be created in Semenov Town of the Nizhniy Novgorod Region. It will be a 18th -19th century house of a peasant-spoon carver with an operating Russian stove and the carvers workshop area. The adjoining area is planned to be designed as a country farmstead with a kitchen garden and a farmyard. The ancient town of Semenov was a city of rigorous Old Believers, talented masters and enterprising merchants. The place gained wide fame as the center of wood carving art, which put it in one range with the most significant and esteemed places associated with folk arts and crafts. Source:
