Wednesday 15 & Wednesday 29 November 2023, Bojagi with Youngmin Lee
18:00 - 21:00 GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)
Online workshop, hosted on Zoom by Youngmin Lee
Youngmin has been reviving the ancient craft of Jogakbo, a form of patchwork Bojagi made with leftover remnants of fabric and Saeksilnubi, Korean quilting, since moving to San Francisco in 1996. Youngmin’s work have been exhibited and collected throughout the United States and abroad. The Asian Art Museum of San Francisco has her work in the museum collection. In 2020, one of her works, ‘Remnants of Memory’ was included in ‘De Young Open’ a juried community art exhibition by the De Young Museum in San Francisco.
In 2017, she founded the Korean Textile Tour to introduce Korean traditional textile art and culture. She leads this tour annually and travels with textile enthusiasts to learn textile traditions in Korea.
Outline of the workshop
Using Korean traditional techniques such as Gamchimjil and Settam Sangchim, Youngmin will teach basic Jogakbo construction. Bojagi construction involves relaxing and mindful hand stitching. During the workshop, Youngmin will show you how to use many small pieces of fabrics to create a geometric pattern or free form Bojagi. Youngmin will also discuss different designs and colour choices.
