Students from Wenlai Experimental School showcase their handicraft works.

Students from Wenlai Experimental School were recently presented a “lavish display” of intangible cultural heritage items, in a bid to preserve and promote traditional culture and arts among local children.

At the event, jointly hosted by the Minhang District Education Bureau and Shanghai Yesbyme Info & Tech Co Ltd, students received lectures on the origins and background of different arts. 

They were also taught by veterans how to make exquisite handicrafts, including tie-dyed clothing, dough modeling, wood-carving and shadow puppetry. Traditional delicacies were offered on site.

Every year, Shanghai Yesbyme Info & Tech Co Ltd hosts the Shanghai International Hobbycraft Expo, a must-visit event for handicraft enthusiasts. Last year the expo attracted 85,000 visitors.

The 2018 edition will be held from December 7 to 9 at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center, where the country’s major achievements in intangible cultural heritage will be put on display.
