Hello! My name is Hwal Ran and I am running a Korean Paper Art Experience Products program. At first, as I was in love with making Hanji crafts, I made them by myself and sold them to customers. As time went by, I changed my mind to share the experience with other people and also teach them how to do it so that people can better understand the real Korean culture. Now, I would like to introduce Korean paper art to people from all over the world in order to make them to have an interesting experience while visiting Korea.
Korean paper art is a traditional craft art decorating lamps, paper pen, frame, hand mirror and etc with Korean traditional paper Hanji. Hanji comes with various colors and has unique bright colors that's just enough to grab your attention. The materials that I offer all come from Jeonju, which is the original place where Hanji started. Although I don't speak fluent English, there's no problem in giving lessons and I will show you demonstrations of how it works and provide you with simple instructions. I held sessions for over 10 years now to tourists and most of them loved after taking it. I want to share my background to all of you.
