An exhibition featuring conventional Anhui craftsmanship opened to the public at Beijing's Palace Museum Tuesday.

The exhibition showcases 85 works by 20 successors of national intangible cultural heritage (ICH) from Huangshan city in eastern China's Anhui Province.

The items include inkstones, ink, brush pens, lacquerware and bamboo carvings. The exhibition gives visitors an opportunity to have direct contact with ICH.

Most calligraphy supplies used by emperors in the Ming and Qing dynasties came from Huangshan and its surrounding areas.

The Palace Museum and Huangshan's municipal government established a workshop on traditional craftsmanship in November 2016, aiming to promote craftsmanship and ICH development in Huangshan.

Huangshan is home to Mount Huangshan, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site, as well as elegant ancient architecture, high-quality green and black tea, and exquisite works of art.

The exhibition will last until May 31.
