Course activities in South Korea
Housed in a hanok,Yoo’s Family offers practical demonstrations of Korean culture in a convenient location. Lessons include the traditional tea ceremony, print-making from carved wooden blocks, Korean cooking and dressing up in hanbok (traditional clothing). A minimum of two persons is required. Tea was a luxury drink in the past and involved a complicated ritual – it is polite to use both hands. Young green-tea leaves, picked in April, are the best (and most expensive). There are lots of photo opportunities and the teaching style is informal and relaxed.
