–>  and a FRIDAY NIGHT SPECIAL  3/24/17  at   7pm  talk from Youngmin Lee

Jogakbo, patchwork bojagi, embodies the philosophy of recycling, as the cloths are made from remnants of leftover fabric. Well considered arrangement of shapes and colors in bojagi show modern and abstract composition as well as Korean women’s creative sensibility.

Bojagi, were used as a wrapper, cover, or storage for objects in daily life, special occasions, and religious rituals. Many bojagi were made for practical reasons with specific purposes. The act of making bojagi also carries wishes for the well-being and happiness of its recipients. This labor of love and prayers imbued bojagi with a memory of affection.

Youngmin Lee will teach bojagi workshop at the Mendocino Art Center on March 24-26, 2017.  Also, if you want a little more information, Mirka Knaster wrote an article about bojagi and Youngmin.
