An exhibition featuring traditional woodblock prints opened at the Silk Museum of Zhejiang Sci-Tech University in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province on March 16. 

58 exquisite works from Shizhuzhai (Ten Bamboo Studio), an art museum in Hangzhou, are being shown at the event. 

Woodblock prints first appeared in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and reached their peak in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), where they represented traditional Chinese aesthetics. Wei Lizhong's studio borrowed the name Shizhuzhai from a renowned printing house in the Ming Dynasty.

The technique was inscribed as a national-level intangible cultural heritage in 2014.
