60代一人で参加。ペンダント作成で申し込み。所要時間ホームページでは30分。

日本語対応は無し。
先生が付いて教えることは無く、若いお兄さんがざっとした早口の英語での説明。
螺鈿の扱いの説明もなく自分で勝手に構図を考えてと。
見本がいくつか置いてあり、それを参考に一人で考え仕上げる。
ホームページ内では所要時間30分とあるが、この後の仕上げの塗り作業に1時間かかるから、後で取りに来てと。

期待していただけに、とても残念な螺鈿細工体験でした。

まず、貴重な一歩ありがとうございます。体験場内に螺鈿に対する材料や作品などが配置されています。訪問者の言語が多様で要求がない場合は主に英語で進行しています。 60~70歳以上の先生もいらっしゃるので、紙の日本語の工程説明書があります。 (日本語要請時。5~7分の先生がいらっしゃいます) 工程により気になる部分を質問していただければ回答をいたします。作業速度なども異なりますが、一人のお客様も体験できるよう常時運営をしています。コーティングは一度だけ説明された時間に完了する。体験ですが、使用であまり不便にならないように塗りを2~3回塗りますので、30~1時間ほどかかることがあります。使用は翌日から行ってください。乾燥時間中に北村韓屋村をツアーすることをお勧めします。見るほとんどの材料は3回以上拭いて柔らかい塗料です。また、手作りで研磨した螺鈿は韓国で高い技術を必要とする高級工芸材料です。 40年以上の職人が薄い糸のトップで財団をしています。良い日にまたお会いできることを祈ります
