The oldest miniature military figures were found in ancient Egyptian tombs and were made some 4 000 years ago.
Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used primitive figurines to organize and plan their battles. In ancient China miniature images of warriors, city-dwellers and peasants were made of clay. In medieval Europe knights’ figures were used to act out tournaments and employed as amulets in battles.
Tin soldiers were produced as early as the 16th century and in the 17th century the figures acquire historical fidelity and become real works of art.
During the workshop its participants will have a chance to make miniature paper soldiers and act out a battle between the Russian and the French Army of 1799.

The workshop is conducted by Sergei Zverev, member of the St.Petersburg Military Miniature Club.
