|Subject||[ITAEWON GVC] Korean Seal Making Class|
On Wednesday, February 12th, 10:00am-12:00pm, we will be taking a trip to the National Museum of Korea for another Korean traditional craft class, “Korean Seal Making Class.”
Ever wondered what those red stamps/seals are on official documents in Korea? Now you can make your own seal bearing your name! Seal-carving was considered a form of art in Korea, many artists carved their own seals. As a cultural style which has been inherited from the past, it preserves both practical and artistic values. In modern Korea, the use of seals is still common. While signing is also accepted, most Koreans have personal seals and many Koreans think it is more formal to use seals in public documents. Especially, hand-crafted seals are becoming more popular now as presents. Can’t write in Hangeul? Don’t worry, teachers will help you write your name in Korean. Children below 12 years old, might have difficulty doing this activity but if you feel that you can “help” your child (by help, meaning doing it for him/her), you can register them too!
The participation fee is 5,000 won (per ONE seal). You can sign up in person or by email only. ***Pre-registration & Pre-payment are required for this class*** For foreigners only.
