Korean consists of vowels and consonants. In line with this, Hangul has consonant letters and vowel letters. Hangul can be divided into phonemes and syllables. Hangul has the principle of using phonemes to make syllables. King Sejong, the inventor of Hangul explained this principle when he introduced this writing system to the world. Hangul consists of lines and circles. Using lines and circles it works on a modular system. This repetitious methodology makes Hangul a simple and geometric writing system. This principle of writing can be used to generate graphic images or to emulate other writing systems. 

This workshop will look into the modular writing principles of Hangul to create letters of your choice. In this, we will look at the consistency, spacing, size, position, and shape of the letters.
