Art and Science of Hanji:
  Past and Future of a Papermaking Tradition

Hanji papermaking, an ancient technique which utilizes the bark of the Korean
  mulberry tree, is still employed today to create beautiful textured paper art
  and sculpture. We invite you to join the Smithsonian’s Libraries, Asian Cultural History Program and Office of Policy and Analysis to learn more about
  this process, its use and conservation. Our speakers will be Paul Michael Taylor, Director of the Asian Cultural History at the Smithsonian, and Hajin Song, Mayor of Jeonju City, Korea.

This program is also sponsored by Office of the Mayor, Jeonju City, Korea and
  KI Creative Group and is being held in conjunction with the opening of the new
  Hanji Exhibition at KORUS House, 2370 Massachusetts Avenue N.W. Washington, D.C. 20008.
