Seoul here we come .....

Tomorrow I'm heading off to Korea for a week with two of my Hanji ladies, Tricia and Anna and a few husbands. The ladies are going to explore the Hanji shops and meet up with like minded friends who love doing Hanji whilst our husbands check out the Art district of Insadong.

It's been two years since I was there and I'm looking forward to seeing any new papers that are available and checking out the latest designs in the Hanji paper, Hanji craft creations and hardware. It's always much nicer to be able to see and feel the papers rather than ordering online.  I also have a long list of things to get for other people so it's going to be a challenge to find everything, but I'll do what I can.

On Sunday at 4 pm I'll be giving a talk at Jankura Artspace in Itaewon, Seoul called 'Hanji - after Korea'.  This came about because  so many people have been asking me questions about  Hanji. If you're in Seoul do come along. It'll be aimed at  expats who love doing Hanji but will be leaving Korea in the  future either to go back to their home city or to another country and don't know where to begin to find the materials needed to continue with Hanji crafts outside of Korea. I'll talk about my journey and hopefully it will inspire people to continue what they love doing.

I hope to have a lot more to report in the next blog post so keep checking it out .....
