“Joomchi” is a unique Korean traditional way of making textured handmade paper by using water and eager hands. This workshop offers participants the opportunity to become acquainted with its history, practice, and role in Korean society, as well as the hands-on techniques and reinterpreted adaptations into a contemporary art form. Joomchi creates strong, textural and painterly surfaces by layering and agitating Hanji (Korean mulberry papers). Its usages are diverse, and it can be incorporated into surface design, collage, a new way of drawing, wearable, unconventional body ornament, or sculptural objects: 2-D & 3D, either functional or fine art oriented.
Level: All levels welcome – previous papermaking experience is helpful, but not required.
Registration closes February 3, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.
