Autumn Craft Formula comes about Russian style
Between September 28 and October 1, 2017, exhibit halls 4 and 4.1 in Moscow Sokolniki Exhibition and Convention Centre will hold the 18th Craft Formula Moscow. Autumn 2017 International Fair. As the autumn marks the new season, every participant will offer something fresh and exciting! This time the event will come about the Russian style as its main theme. During its centuries-long history the Russian people have created artistic fables and wise tales, magnificent lace work and clay work, gorgeous wood carving and embroidery items, a plethora of rich and rhythmically bright songs, astonishing and diverse dances. Among the latter is the Russian round dance, a true masterpiece of dancing art that represents the lifestyle of our ancestors, being much more than just a dance and reflecting the great heartedness and boldness of the Russian soul.
