Wrapping with Blessings I and II (two workshops)
Participants at Quilting by the Lake 2020 have the opportunity to learn the ancient Korean art from Seo during her two workshops, “Wrapping with Blessings I” and Wrapping with Blessings II.” Students will use different Korean natural fabrics such as silk, ramie, and hemp in traditional Korean colors depending on classes. Students can use the pieces they make in class to later turn into window screens, table runners, shawls, scarves, bags, and more, using their own patterns.
Bojagi is a general term for all wrapping cloths in Korea. Traditional folk religions believed that keeping something wrapped protected it and bestowed good luck. Bojagi is used in everyday life from household items to gift wrapping, food covers, and also featured in weddings and Buddhist rites. More recently, they have been recognized as a traditional art form, often featured in museums and inspiring modern reinterpretations by artists like Seo. (Quilt by the Lake )
