3-Day Workshop with Jiyoung Chung - 9am - 4pm each day
In this workshop students will explore Joomchi, a unique Korean traditional way of making textured handmade paper using water and eager hands. You will discover its history, practice and role in Korean society, as well as learning the hands-on techniques and reinterpreted adaptations into a contemporary art form. Joomchi creates strong and painterly textured surfaces by layering and agitating Hanji (Korean mulberry papers). Its usage is diverse and can be incorporated into surface design, collage, new ways of drawing, or for wearable, unconventional body ornaments. Joomchi can also be used as 2D and 3D sculptural objects that are functional or fine art oriented.
