A Crafty Trip to Seoul - Bojagi Sewing Class

I have been quite fascinated
with the traditional Korean patchwork...

Therefore, during my trip in Seoul,
I took the opportunity to immerse myself
in a traditional cultural hands-on experience.
I participated a bojagi sewing class 
 at one of the Traditional Craft Centre.

There are many other traditional craft classes 
such as hanji paper crafts, knot making, fan illustrations,
traditional mask making and etc...
are being offered around Seoul.

The popularity of do-it-yourself culture
is spreading over to traditional Korean crafts.
Tourist and foreigners living in Korea
are becoming more interested not just in sightseeing,
but actually participating in hands-on activities.
