3-daagse workshop o.l.v. Chunghie Lee (Korea)

Bojagi, Korean traditional wrapping cloths, were made by women in both common households and the royal court. Patched Bojagi mostly made of scraps of fabric, they served for storing, carrying, and covering things in the households and at ceremonies, such as weddings. Bojagi textiles
were made in different sizes to accommodate objects from jewelry to bedding. This traditional craft of women who led sheltered lives has become great inspiration to today’s artists both in Korea and elsewhere in the world. 

In this workshop  Chunghie Lee introduces the Bojagi being adapted into making contemporary Hanbok (Korean traditional clothing), including  Durumagi, womens’s outgoing long/short jacket.

The first day of this 3-day class  students will learn the basic bojagi construction techniques which could be incorporated into fabric and or paper collages and or mixed media works. 

While the technique is adaptable to many forms of works i.e. 2-D, 3-D, either architectural body ornaments, soft sculptures and/or wearables, students will be challenged the second and third day to think about 'wrapping' their body with a so called modern version of Hanbok and create their own. 

Chunghie will bring patterns as well as the original traditional stiff and translucent Korean fabrics to choose from. But participants can also bring their own pre-dyed stiff translucent fabrics, e.g. silk organza or cotton organdie. No commercially patterned fabric recommended. 

Students are asked to bring their own sewing machine (well cleaned and oiled, basic function, straight & zigzag would do)

But those who prefer handsewing over machine stitching are welcome to do so

And those who prefer to make a larger patchwork bojagi instead of clothing are welcome as well.
