Joomchi is a unique Korean traditional way of making textured handmade paper by using water, and eager hands. This workshop offers participants the opportunity to become acquainted with its history, practice and role in Korean society, as well as the hands-on techniques and reinterpreted adaptations into contemporary art form.

Joomchi creates strong, textural and painterly surfaces by layering and agitating Hanji (Korean mulberry papers). Its usages are diverse and it can be incorporated into surface design, collage, new ways of drawing, wearable, unconventional body ornament or sculptural object: two-dimensional and three-dimensional, either functional or fine art oriented.


JIYOUNG CHUNG is a Joomchi artist, painter and freelance writer who shows her works nationally and internationally. She has developed an innovative method for utilizing a traditional Korean method of papermaking called Joomchi into contemporary art form.
