Work with patchwork and artist Anna Farago to play with this beautiful Korean form of patchwork.
Teacher: Anna Farago
Workshop Duration: Half Day
Description: Pojagi patchwork creates seam allowances which are totally enclosed, so either side can be displayed. Pogagi can be used to create leadlight effects for curtains, table runners or simply beautiful non-functional work.
Traditionally pojagi patchwork is done by hand. A couple of the traditional methods will be demonstrated during the workshop, as well as a non-traditional method using a sewing machine. Workshop participants can choose to have a go at a few methods or pick one and stitch away during the workshop.
Participant to bring:
- Scrap sheer fabric such as linen, lightweight cotton, hankies
- Rotary cutter (if you have one)
- Cutting matt (if you have one)
- Neutral cotton thread or colours to match your fabric
- Greylead pencil, ruler
- Sewing machine (optional, you may just want to hand stitch)
Supplied: Some fabric scraps, cutting matts and rotary cutters, samples and examples of pojagi patchwork made using the techniques and methods to be used during the workshop.
Takeaway: You'll takeaway a small piece of your own Pojagi patchwork along with the knowledge of how to use this technique to stunning effect.
