Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations, keeping in mind authenticity, reciprocity, and networking.
Slow Fiber Studios would like to help spread the word about San Francisco Bay area artist Youngmin Lee and her work at LACMA this month and next. SFS recently has produced an instructional film about Youngmin Lee titled, Bojagi Wrapping Cloths: The Art of Korean Stitching, which you can find online at our SFS Shop!
Youngmin Lee will be leading workshops on Korean textile arts. Participants will have the opportunity to create their very own piece to take home. You can also contribute stitches to the community bojagi–a traditional Korean patch-work textile used for wrapping gifts and other items. Materials provided.
Suggested ages 10 and up. The final bojagi will be displayed in the Boone Children’s Gallery for all to see after the series of workshops.
