The annual Shanghai International Handicraft Expo has entered a new level, as more than 200 exhibitors from Spain, Japan, Uruguay and Africa attended this year’s event at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center.

From November 24 to 26, people who are interested in handicraft making were attracted to the 3rd Shanghai International Handicraft Expo, which took up an exhibition area of 12,000 square meters in total. 

As one of the highlights during this year’s event, around 300 DIY classes offered by exhibitors and graduate students from Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts were opened to the public, according to the organizer of the event. Skilled craftsmen, calligraphers and wood engravers were also invited to promote traditional arts and crafts. Inheritors of intangible cultural heritage also displayed their skills while interacting with the visitors. Besides, up to 50 lectures were held during the three-day exposition.

For those who could not make it to the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center, the organizer told the reporter that an online expo platform had been built to engage handicraft lovers with the colorful activities.
