In this workshop, students will learn about, design and carve their own Hanko stamp!

This workshop requires concentration, good reading eyesight (please bring your glasses if you need them) and finger grip, as participants will be carving a small stone with a small chisel.

All materials are provided, and workshop places are limited to ensure one-on-one tuition.
