Bojagi with Sara Cook - Lotus Leaf Wrapping Cloth Workshop Sunday 17th 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 traditional Lotus Leaf wrapping cloth workshop Sara will show you how to hand sew your wrapping cloth using Korean Silk Organza and stitched with silk thread. This uses the Khogpigi or pinching technique . The handle is decorated with handmade silk flowers.

Included: All materials, equipment, lunch and cake.
