Learning about Korean carpentry

According the pantheon of Korean high arts, carpentry is one of the most coveted and difficult talents possessed by very few citizens of Seoul. Shim Yong-Sik opens his beautiful studio in his home to interested visitors. You can learn about the rich history of nail-less Korean carpentry and even try your hand at being his apprentice for the day when he's not working to restore one of Korea's historical monuments. Tours require some translation assistance for those who don't speak Korean -- Kensington Tours can help with this (kensingtontours.com).
