What you'll do

I will pick you up from the hotel or pickup point and bring to my home studio where we’ll make together one of my favorite characters - Kim Jong Ball or Donald Ball on your choice (silicone stress toys representing the images of North Korean leader and the president of the USA). You’ll take the toy with you as a gift and unique souvenir from Vladivostok.

At first, I’ll show you my working place, and tell about the process of creation from initial drafts and 3D modeling to the production of the toy.

Then we’ll go together through the process of silicone casting to get your own copy of Kim Jong Ball or Donald Ball.

Finally, we’ll have a 60 minutes break until the silicone is got cured. We’ll spend this time drinking tea with cookies and chatting about whatever you want.

Meet your host, Tanya

Host on Airbnb since 2014

Hello, I’m Tanya, artist and toy designer. I create ironic objects and characters using various technics and materials, from textile and clay to resin and silicone and take part in some local exhibitions from time to time.
One of my projects, Tanka Toys is a series of “Mocking dolls” — fun and cute characters with a satirical spirit made to reveal the irony and, sometimes, the absurdity of Big Politics. You can see more of them on my Instagram page @tankatoys.

Where you'll be

The workshop is held at my home studio, where I live with my husband and funny twins, so you’ll also have a chance to get an idea of what Russian family daily life looks like.
