On Friday, July 1st, 1:00pm-3:00pm, the Itaewon Global Village Center will hold a “Hanji Lamp Making Class.” Participants will make a beautiful Hanji Lamp using colorful Korean Traditional paper, Hanji.
Hanji is a paper made from all natural ingredients and it has been used in Korea for centuries. In the past, it was used in daily life, making books, windows and doors. The paper is so durable that layered Hanji was even used as an armor that could stop arrows. These days Hanji is used for mostly decorative purposes such as making dolls, wrapping paper, decorative boxes, and other handicrafts.
The participation fee is 20,000 won. You can sign up in person or by email only. (Only foreigners can join this program.)
