Seal Carving Workshop – Pictorial Seal

Seals can be used for both practical and artistic purposes. Seal inscription can be presented in the form of text only, graphics only or both. Pictorial seals refer to seal inscriptions with graphics only. In this workshop, a seal carving veteran will introduce and demonstrate how to transform an image onto a seal and how to carve a pictorial seal. Participants will be given hands-on experience in carving on a seal stone to raise their interest in, and appreciation of, the seal carving technique.
