Date of material placement: 7-11-2013, 16:57.

The North-Caucasus Federal University is still hosting the Festival of North-Caucasus cultures NCFU: Home to friendship. Trade fair of north Caucasus.

If you come to Building 1 of the NCFU you will see many exhibits displayed here – cutting boards, hand-made toys, various accessories, crockery, pictures (both painted and embroidered).

All those willing are learning something new right here, at the master-classes held at the lobby. Just a single short break is enough to learn some sweet-design and roll a paper flower with a chocolate inside; to make a Slavonic amulet-doll or twine the Homeland bracelet; to make a true on-wall panel or to crochet a braid. Masters of plastic-work will initiate you into the mystery of modelling and baking funny toys to decorate your home forever the walls at your home while the gurus of encaustic will teach you painting with hot wax; you can also learn here how to turn just a couple of pieces of fabric into a doll as well as master the technique of stained-glass painting. Or you can cheer for those involved in the contest MY HOME IS NCFU and vote for the best embroidered NCFU logo. This contest matched more than a few students, girls mostly, of course. And it is obvious they are not competing for the prize alone yet they are enjoying it.

Of course there is a crowd at each exhibition – some are just lookers-on while others are trying it themselves. And all the master-classes are popular with people standing in lines here and there. But the sites enjoying most demand are the Plastic-work, the Homeland, the Encaustic, and the Fabric Doll.

The participants, the leaders of the master-classes as well as the MC and the actors entertaining people were wearing national costumes.

Just like at any fair all the things produced here were put for an auction – costume decorations, toys, paintings. Some were selling all they could produce applying their mind and hands while others paid for the beautiful toys or, to be exact, for the memories of this marvelous event. Here among the crowd were walking First Pro-Rector Dmitry Sumskoy, Pro-Rector for Educational Activities Vladimir Magin, Director of the Institute of construction, transport and engineering Andrey Bratsikhin and many others. It was obvious that they were enjoying the event no less than dozens of students who were happy to learn more about other cultures from this FAIR.

And afternoon of Day 4 the major event was held in Building 9. Of course, it is always good to share your joy!
