Hwajungjibyeong - Rice cakes in a painting

The “Hwajungjibyeong” program available at the Suwon Center for Traditional Culture invites visitors to enjoy traditional Korean snacks, particularly a type of rice cake called Baekseolgi. Using Baekseolgi as a foundation, visitors can try their hand in turning local flowers, including chrysanthemums, camellias, plum blossoms, hydrangeas, and trigonitis, that appear frequently in Korean traditional Minhwa paintings (folk paintings) into Jeolpyeon rice cakes. Visitors learn not only how to make rice cakes using different techniques, but also which ingredients are useful as food colorings (gardenia seeds, cactus fruit, radish, sweet pumpkin, etc.). Please note that this program is available in Korean only. 

Duration: Available on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays from March to December 2019
Time: 10:00~17:00
Venue: Suwon Center for Traditional Culture
Fee: KRW 3,000 per person
