Course Description

IN PERSON: This workshop will teach a fresh and fun technique for creating with paper, stitching, book arts and more. Joomchi is the traditional Korean paper craft of creating textured handmade paper using your hands and water. Joomchi paper art dates back to the Korean Goryeo dynasty, A.D. 918-1392. There are many possibilities for creating stand-alone pieces or incorporating Joomchi into your art and craft pieces. Students will practice manipulating Korean mulberry hanji papers, which are strong enough to be used to create felted and leatherlike looks that can support stitches, inclusions and applique. Time will be given to viewing examples, learning the history of Joomchi, asking questions and getting guidance on adapting Joomchi to your art projects. You will be able to consider the possibilities as you view ways that the instructor has incorporated Joomchi into book arts, wearable art, surface design layering, framed art and functional works. | Active Skill Learning.
