Bojagi - From ancient traditions to contemporary interpretations

Friday, May 7, 2021

Bojagi have played an important role in traditional Korean culture and have been used in the everyday to wrap, carry and store objects. Until the 1950’s they were used to wrap or cover everything from bedding and clothes to food dishes and for religious rituals. I will introduce you to the historical significance and symbolism of this ancient craft and how contemporary textile artists are interpreting these ideas in their work. 


I include plenty of examples in the power point and I will show actual examples of bojagi to the group after the talk using my overhead camera.
