Tools & Techniques

Koreans have made hanji and used it for centuries. They experimented with different materials, put all of the plants that they lived with to good use, and came up with various ways to turn paper into functional objects. This included creating and updating tools and equipment and testing the limits of what hanji could do in their skilled hands.
