The organisation of the workshops constitutes a continuation of the successful cooperation of the Czech Centre in Seoul and the Seoul Jewelry Industry Support Center, Fashion Jewelry Town in Daegu and the Museum of Jewelry in Iksan, with which the Handmade Dreams exhibition presenting the contemporary trends in the production of Czech costume jewelry and a series of lectures by the head curator of the Museum of Glass and Costume Jewellery in Jablonec nad Nisou, Petr Nový, were held last year.
