Anhui crafts focus

EXPO visitors can make their own writing brushes, ink sticks, paper and ink stones, known as the Chinese four treasures of study, at the Baosteel Stage during Anhui Province Week.

A series of exhibitions and parades began yesterday to show the cultural riches of Shanghai's neighboring Anhui Province, themed on "Anhui Cultures Makes Life Better." The week will last through to Monday.

Visitors can ask craftsmen to carve their names or goodwill wishes on the brushes, ink sticks, paper and ink stones. The craftsmen said they would only try to cover costs with a charge of less than 100 yuan.

A calligrapher will also write sentences on paper or a fan for no charge.

An acrobat show will staged at 11am and 2:30pm each day and a drum show will occur at 2pm at Celebration Square.
