Originating in Europe and introduced into China in the 19th century, woolen needlepoint tapestry is a modern innovation of traditional embroidery. Shanghai woolen needlepoint tapestry has been popular since the 1940s. Its design is based on western painting and photography, through which various stitching techniques were adopted.

The event also will feature lectures on Chinese woolen embroidery, to share the story behind the woolen needlepoint tapestry skills and talk about the journey of intangible cultural heritage protection and inheritance in China.
