WHILE a costume parade revives the city's royal history in Bratislava's Main Square next Saturday, September 6, artisans will gather to demonstrate their traditional folk crafts behind the gate of the Old Town Hall and in the Primate Square.

The ÚĽUV Masters Days festival, which enters its 13th year, is organised by the Centre of Folk and Art Production (ÚĽUV), an institution which aims to preserve the values of Slovakia's folk heritage.

From Saturday to Sunday, craftsmen from across the country will sell their wares, as well as demonstrate the process of manufacturing them, in Bratislava's Old Town centre. Lectors from ÚĽUV will teach pottery, weaving, glass painting and lace work to children, as well as show how to make products from corn leaves, wire and wood.

On Saturday evening, a show presenting different folk costumes from various Slovak regions will be held. From Sunday an exhibition of works by ÚĽUV folk-craft masters will run in the Bratislava City Museum until the beginning of October.
