Fall into the world of Dakpaper dolls in Bukchon Hanok Village!!

Dakpaper is Korean traditional paper made from Korean Mulberry trees named Dak-namu (namu means tree.) Since the texture of the dakpaper is soft yet strong, people have used the paper to make handicrafts. One of them is dakpaper doll. Dakpaper dolls usually give a warm feeling due to its texture. Jaebin H went to Cho Kyung-Wha workshop and made a pretty doll out of dakpaper. Let’s hear how much she enjoyed this activity!

Inspiration through Dance - Dance To Connect in Busan

Being part of a multi-racial society can be a barrier to making friends due to the limitations of language, but recently here in Busan four groups of people crossed that divide in a most unusual way.

The Dance-To-Connect workshop arranged by the American Embassy Seoul and the American Prescence Post in Busan invited the Battery Dance Company (BDC) from New York to hold a week long workshop in Busan.

The worksop was hosted at the Sohyang Music Theatre near Centum in Busan and comprised of four groups of people numbering about a hundred strong.

The four groups were split into, North Korean family members, disadvantaged children, a choir and multi-national housewives.

The theme of the show was to highlight the emotions of the lives of people in each group. I was very fortunate that my wife, a Filipina was one of the housewife group members and became the photographer for the event.


Workshop Trip to Andong

Twice a year the school owners take all of their staff on a workshop trip. This is an overnight sightseeing trip AND it is all expenses paid. This trip we went to Andong. Andong is in Gyeongsangbuk province with a population of 170.000. I have been wanting to visit Andong since my first year in Korea but I never got around to going, so it was really nice to finally visit. In 1999 Queen Elizabeth visited Andong on her 73rd birthday. This is another reason why I was interested in visiting. I went to a mini museum that had an exhibition and it was dedicated to her historic visit!

When our bosses take their staff on a workshop they ask us to write a report to show our appreciation and to share our impressions. Naturally we exaggerate our experience to ensure they understand how grateful we are for this culture trip.

Here is our report…..
