As part of the "Quality Mark. Soviet Agitprom” exhibition, the first master class on the production of Soviet style gift wrappings was held in in the Chelyabinsk Regional Museum of Local History. Schoolchildren from Miass discovered the art of Soviet handmade.
Each child received a cardboard workpiece. Using scissors and ribbons they turned it into pyramid shaped elegant box. During excursion children learned how did tea, coffee, fish, soap and other habitual packaging look like in Soviet times. For example, kids were surprised to find that the baby cream or "Bears in the Forest" candies did not change their appearance at all. Teachers were satisfied with exhibition as well: "It feels like it was just recently, though, more than twenty years have passed already. Thanks to the museum for preserving these things for future generations!"
