Berrigan Library is featuring the Nostalgia in Blue Exhibition.

The exhibition shows examples of Batik, Bandhnu and blue printed calicos, and is known as the Nostalgia in Blue Exhibition.

The pieces are dyed with natural pigments to create decorative patterns with sensational effects.

In China all three crafts have been listed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List and have received national recognition.

The crafts reflect the beautiful souls of the Chinese working women.

The exhibition is sizeable, arriving in three large creates, and the library staff have displayed as much as what the space has allowed.

The exhibition is travelling the country and will next move onto Melbourne.

But before it does, make sure to head along to the local library to check out the beautiful craft.
