10,000 visitors attended the first Russian Festival of Glass at VDNH: photo report

More than 10,000 people attended Russia's first glass festival, Moscow Glass Fest, that took place at the VDNH Park of Crafts last weekend. Skilled glass makers from across Russia gave free workshops, there was an exhibition of art objects and installations, a handmade craft fair and the weather was warm and sunny, all of which made the festival interesting, enjoyable and informative.


Visitors to the Glass Fest especially enjoyed the original music programme. On Saturday, Alexander Lemeshev played a glass harp — a musical instrument made of 24–36 wine and cognac glasses. On Sunday, Fedor Grigoriev performed masterpieces of world music playing two dozen bottles suspended in the air.
