Join artist and tutor, Sara Cook, and learn how to make this simple Jogakbo light catcher inspired by Korean pieced patchwork known as bojagi.

During the class, you will receive step-by-step guidance and practical tips on how to use silk organza, the best way to cut and handle this fabric and sew together using the Korean Kkekki seam, a fine triple stitched and folded seam that encloses all the raw edges, to make your own light catcher.

You can continue adding pieces to you light catcher to make a bigger project or start one of your own designs. During the session participants will decorate this piece with Bakjwi, the bat symbol for good luck.
