What you'll do

In this workshop, I will not only teach you how to write beautifully, but also how to experience the joy of carving a handcrafted seal. You will create a design using your name. During this activity, your mind will relax and you will experience healing through the slow analog, tactile sensibility of everyday life. I will teach you how to design and carve your name with a engraving knife on a small stone. First, I shows two ways to engrave the seal and demonstrates how to carve with a carving knife.(straight line, circle, etc.) Then I helps you learn to hold the engraving tool and practice properly. Next, I show the way to design the names and help to design according to syllable of name. You go for it and then cover with ink of Korean style and take a stamp. Once the engraving is over, you can choose a elegant case for your stone seal. It will be an opportunity to rethink the meaning of your name that you have forgotten while carving the seal. When you return home, you'll enjoy looking at the stamp you carved and remembering your travels. I'll write down a message for you in K-calligraphy after you have stamp your seal on a postcard I prepare. Seoul Woman Craft Center is a new hub of craft innovation and cultural distribution of craft industry of Seoul. It is only one space where by the supporting of Seoul government . You get a chance to look around Korea crafts.

I'm a professional handcrafting engraver, and I received the Encouragement Prize at the Seoul Women's Crafts Competition and the Excellence Prize at the KT Women's Desire Competition. I've won three types of awards at the Namdo Calligraphy Exhibition, which have been exhibited annually. I teach at various organizations, and I have registered two intellectual properties for my design works. I published my book <The power of calligraphy> in March 2018. My works have been feathered on MBC TV and LG U plus TV. My story that have begun new life with calligraphy and carving a name on a stone was also introduced in several magazines.
