Stamp Making and the Hangeul Museum

On Wednesday I went on a field trip with my Ewha classmates to a stamp making class and the Hangul Museum. We left around 2pm and took the subway for about an hour to get to our destination. The exterior of the museum is beautiful! IMG_4292

We made the stamps first, which took about 2 hours. It was some intense work image But it was a lot of fun! Our materials were gloves, a wooden block (to hold the stamp in place), markers, translucent sheets of paper, and a carving tool.

We were able to carve our names into the block by first writing our name on the sheet of paper, flipping the paper over and then copying the reflected image onto the block. From there we were able to start carving.

Here is the finished product and the nice case we get to keep the stamp in.

After the stamp making, we went over to the Hangul museum. Hangul (한글) is the Korean alphabet which has been used since the 15th century. It has a really amazing history and I enjoyed touring the museum.
