What better way to start off a crystal clear year than to dive into something totally new? Hangul is the written language of Korea, the little country that could. Find out more about this unique writing system, how it works, and how it forms the backbone of Korean pop culture. We'll begin with your name and how to write it in Hangul, introducing you to the modular/block system. Then we will build our own elements to create a unique one-of-a-kind script based on Hangul's writing system. Throughout, you will be introduced to the culture of Korea and its rich history surrounding Hangul. No prior experience required, just inquisitive minds and fun-loving attitudes. Oh~Hangul-themed prizes will be given! 

Topics to be covered:

  • Advent of Hangul
  • Hangul as a Modular Writing System
  • Korean Type Design Basics
  • Hangul in Pop Culture

Also included:

  • Loot bag of workshop goodies
  • 10% shopping discount at Paper Plus Cloth
  • Coffee, tea, and treats while you work on your project

***No refunds available once purchased, so please make sure you will be available for the date and location mentioned in this listing, however the seat is transferable***
