Needle & Thread Workshops

Bojagi with Sara Cook - Jagakbo Workshop Saturday 16th May 2020

Regular price £85.00

Bojagi, sometimes called Pojagi, is a traditional Korean textile art. Centuries old, it was originally textiles made for every day living with scraps of left-over fabrics artfully put together. They often resemble works of modern artists such as Mondrian and Klee. Today, the technique now produces beautiful textiles that are fast influencing textile art in the West, particularly amongst quilters.

On this contemporary Jogakbo workshop you will use a sewing machine to piece beautiful silk organza. Sara will show you how to piece with a choice of seams, a Korean Kkeki seam (triple stitched seam), a French seam, and how to make the Jakssi (a type of prairie point) decoration to include within the work.

Included: All materials, equipment, lunch and cake.
