Hosted by POST + Elizabeth Royal (of Mend Detroit)
Saturday, April 11th from 10:30am to 1:30pm
Pojagi (which means "wrapping cloth") is a traditional Korean method of quilting that uses seams that trap the raw edges inside of the fabric. These quilts look especially beautiful when held up to the light and have been used as window coverings, table covers, wrappers, and room dividers.
During this three hour make and take workshop, participants will learn the basics of Pojagi hand quilting.This workshop will cover basic pattern planning, piecing, seaming and finishing and uses materials and supplies sourced by Elizabeth directly from the Namdaemun Textile Market in Seoul. Each student will take home a small pojagi work in progress, extra Remi fabric, linen thread, a needle, and a wood and metal Hera.
Although not required, students will benefit from bringing with them: a straight edge tool (such as a ruler or sewing gauge), a rotary cutter and cutting mat.
