What you'll do

Experience traditional callipraphy of Korea

Calligraphy, the basis of spiritual culture and art practice, is the essence of Korean traditional art. Watch how the brush draws the mind through my own performances, and appreciate the masterpieces of calligraphy and seal-engraving as I share stories behind each pieces. After you learn using the brush and make ink using a inkstone, you'll make a work (including your name) in Korean characters.

Where you'll be

Yil-wol workshop is where you will find Korean traditional culture still alive and breathing - along with 17-year-old layers of dust, which grew old with me. Here, you will be able to learn the basics of calligraphy as well as admire selected pieces of calligraphy and traditional seals.

Great personality, I learned a lot. He was definitely an expert and kept the conversation and experience fun. I got to take home my calligraphy and it is now hung up on my wall. Was a great experience.

This was an amazing experience! I highly recommend this class! I'd always wondered about traditional calligraphy and now I have the foundations to continue in my free time. I loved learn the history and the folklore that is deeply ingrained in this masterful craft was exciting. Master Junho was super insightful and funny. The instructor spoke English well. I walked away with a piece of artwork I'd love to hang in my home to remember this amazing experience by. I'm not even good at artistic endeavors, but found this accessible. There's definitely a lot of skill in the technique. Definitely give this a shot if you're considering.

It was definitely an educational, informative, fun, calming, and special experience! The host was very kind, humorous, and an expert in the field. Both my boyfriend and I learned a lot about culture, history, and caligraphy in general. We would love to do this again!

I really enjoyed my afternoon spent with Junho in his studio! He shared a lot about the rich history of Hangeul and Korean calligraphy which I found really interesting. He taught me the basic brush strokes and guided me in doing a piece with a phrase I chose (which he translated). He also demonstrated how he carves a stone seal, which was fascinating to watch! Junho was kind and warm-hearted throughout, and I could feel his passion for the subject, which made me even more interested during the session. If you are interested in calligraphy/lettering/art, you will enjoy this experience!
