The exhibition-fair of handicraft wares “The Town of Masters” is held today in Ufa, the trade-business center "Gostiny Dvor", where the unique handicraft goods of Bashkir masters are demonstrated.
“All wares are manufactured in one copy” – the representative of the company — the fair's organizer Marina Malykh says — "The number of visitors is always high. People buy the things they like both for themselves and as gifts. As for the author's works, I can mention the wares, made of polymeric clay and glass beads. For the first time we introduce wood engravings here. Our soap-boilers also introduce their novelties, using dry grasses as the materials".
One can also find the designer's headgears here, manufactured by Bashkir masters from the light knitted fabric. "The Town of Masters" is also the site for the master-classes. Now, for example, the seminar, devoted to felt-making, is held here.
Masters from many Republican towns are taking part in the fair and the representatives of the neighboring regions, from Chelyabinsk region, in particular, begin to display their interest in the fair too.
