Books & Paper P Summer Session 1

MAY 28–JUNE 2, 2023
Steph Rue
Korean Paper + Textiles

This workshop will explore the intersection of handmade Korean paper (hanji) and textile. Starting with raw dak (mulberry) fiber, we’ll make hanji using a modified Korean sheetforming method and then manipulate our handmade sheets in a variety of ways, including natural dyeing, felting, spinning into thread, and stitching like fabric. We’ll also cover methods for constructing a paper bojagi (patchwork textile) using scraps and samples generated during the workshop. There will be daily demonstrations and some lectures, but most of the workshop will be dedicated to experimentation and play. All levels. Papermaking studio.
