Following an amazing  gyu bang workshop with Kim Yu Jin last week , I thought i would seek out some Korean artistic outlets in London. I found this amazing website with lots of great information and links and some amazing artwork from members. The rather lovely, Yu Jin herself will be running a ten week Korean boudoir handicraft workshop soon at the Korean Cultural Centre UK.
