At the theatrical performance, the students were immersed in the atmosphere of the medieval city of Bolgar. Khan and Khanbike told about the history of Volga Bulgaria, told the children how trade, science, education and crafts developed in this state. The participants of the event had master-classes on pottery, art painting, vine weaving and wood carving. The children saw with their own eyes how plastic clay in the hands of a master turns into a finished product. The artists presented a master class on artistic painting of plaster figurines. Painting intricate patterns is a painstaking and fascinating process, in which the children took part with pleasure. At the master-class, the basic methods and techniques of vine weaving were presented.
Then everyone was acquainted with the peculiarities of Arabic script and imitation of ancient writing devices. The children learnt to write their names in Arabic using ink and goose quill or reed kalam.
