Class Description: In this workshop, learn the basic construction of Bojagi, which are Koren wrapping cloths. Bojagi are pieced together from small scraps of cloth and is the most unique form of Korean textile art. In Korean culture, Bojagi were used to wrap or carry everything from precious ritual objects to everyday clothes and common household goods and also to cover food. It is also strikingly contemporary: the designs and colors of bojagi remind one of the works of modern abstract artists. Bojagi can be described as a true form of abstract expressionism.

During the workshop, Youngmin will demonstrate how to use many small pieces of ramie fabrics, silk organza and Korean silk gauze to create a geometric patterned bojagi. The finished project will have a unique composition of different shapes, lines and texture. Supplies: All materials will be mailed to you prior to the start of class. You will need to supply a pair of scissors.

Class Minimum: 3 students
