There will be a special treat at this year's Maslenitsa event:
we will be making maslenitsa dolls out of yarn! Liya Zalaltdinova from Kazan, a former Russian Fulbright and a crafts specialist, will be teaching us how.
Russian food (bliny!) and drinks will be served.
So, come enjoy the food and good company, while learning about this Russian holiday.
