The Magic of Korean Paper

A Workshop with Aimee Lee

In this work­shop, Aimee Lee–the lead­ing han­ji researcher and prac­ti­tion­er in the Unit­ed State–will show how to take best advan­tage of this light­weight but durable mate­r­i­al by adding water and elbow grease to tex­ture and fuse col­ored han­ji using Kore­an joom­chi meth­ods.

Aimee Lee Korean paper artStu­dents will also learn how to cut a sin­gle sheet of han­ji into one con­tin­u­ous thread, which can be spun and twist­ed to use for future fiber tech­niques.
