Learn about Bojagi and enjoy making a coaster.
In Korean, Bojagi means cloths that can be used to wrap items. In old times, Korean women made Bojagi from leftover fabric by stitching them together. Today, Bojagi fascinates people not only as wrapping cloths but also as interior items or art pieces due to the variety of designs.
In this course, participants learn whip stitches for two-layered Bojagi, and make a coaster with Korean silk or ramie fabric. Let’s enjoy designing and hand sew our own, unique coasters!
No previous experience needed, beginners are welcome. This course is led by Seika, a Korean-Japanese sewing teacher and the course is given in English.
