Korean Seal Making Class

On Friday, November 11th, 10:00 am-12:00 pm, we will be taking a trip to the National Museum of Korea (국립중앙박물관) for a unique craft class, “Korean Seal Making Class.” Participants will have a chance to make their very own Korean Seal(Stamp) by designing and engraving.

Seal carving is considered a form of art; many artists carved their own seals. As a cultural style that 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, the hand-crafted seal is loved as a personal stamp or a present.

Each participant will be able to make one seal. Also, if you haven’t had the chance to see the National Museum you could take this opportunity to check it out after the class. (The tour should be reserved in advance through the website of the National Museum of Korea)

The participation fee is 5,000won (per seal/Cash Only). You can sign up in person or by email only. To join, please email us your name, nationality, and contact number.

*This class will be conducted in Korean and translated in English.
