A fun handicraft and intangible cultural heritage event was staged in Baotou city -- in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region recently -- attracting kids and adults alike to take in and get involved in handicrafts like making hats, snacks, sugar painting and dough modeling, local officials said.
They said the event was part of the 35th Lucheng Culture and Art Festival which recently opened in the city, according to a report in the Baotou Daily.
The event combined displays and experiences to present the colorful intangible cultural heritage of Qingshan district in Baotou.
Residents not only watched the production process behind traditional techniques at close range, but also got to learn more about the handicrafts and other skills. They also experienced them hands-on and tasted a variety of traditional snacks.
The event invited 17 inheritors of intangible cultural heritage to participate in a five-day exhibition in Baotou Olympic Park and Northern Weaponry Park, featuring Baotou paper-cutting, traditional children's shoes and hat making skills, Mongolian suet soap, sugar painting and Baotou dough modeling.
