About our Volunteer Groups

Our volunteer teams are the driving force behind the majority of SIWAs signature events, tours, and special events. It’s these people who put in the time and effort to plan, organize, and co-ordinate our fantastic events.

Get involved with one of our teams today or take a look at what they have coming up in the future!

Event Date
Tour: Yangjae Flower Market

Located in Yangjae-dong in Seocho-gu, this enormous market sells all kinds of garden supplies, from pots and soil to flowers and trees. Real and artificial items are sold from both wholesale and retail vendors. This market is a combination of greenhouses, indoor and outdoor vendors. This is the place to go for both novice and serious gardeners seeking more than just cut flowers and small plants (but you can find those too!).

Tour: Gold Leaf Imprinting Workshop

Make your own gold leaf imprint, Geumbak, in a traditional Korean hanok. Geumbak is the Korean traditional craft for applying extremely thin gold leaf on hanbok, or other fabrics for decoration. We will learn the history of Geumbakjang, the significance and symbolism of the gold and the icons on royal clothing, and techniques used to apply gold to silk.

Tour: Buk Seoul Museum of Art

This is the fourth, and newest branch of the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA). Situated in northeastern Seoul, this unique museum was awarded the 2013 Seoul Architecture Award. To create harmony with the natural surroundings of Deungnamu Park, the exterior is half buried in the ground and creates a small hill.
