List of works>> English Simplified Chinese and Korean 

When observing crafts, we come across various ○s, △s, □s, and ×s. While some ○s are quite obvious, you can discover others only after delving deep into the structure. Both are the basics of crafts. ○s are created from artists’ imagination and with ingenious devices for improvement and enhancement.
              Our goal for this summer is to explore the secrets of crafts through the frame of ○△□×. Why don’t you try at your own pace, or joining forces  of kids and adults? Enjoyable programs as well as helpful tools will be available. Don’t miss it!
