In the past, Jogakbo, patchwork bojagi, was made with leftover remnants of fabric from other projects. Using Korean traditional techniques such as Gamchimjil, Settam Sangchim and Ssamsol, Youngmin will teach basic jogakbo construction in this workshop. Bojagi construction involves hand stitching, which can be very relaxing. While working on your bojagi, wish for the happiness and well-being of the recipient of your finished bojagi. During the workshop, Youngmin will show 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.
