Bojagi (Pojagi) is a traditional Korean wrapping cloth and patchworks. Students will learn about a brief story of the Bojagi tradition, a basic hand stitching technique, and how to create coasters from fabric scraps. Students will also learn how to save an accessory or item of clothing from being tossed, by utilizing traditional Japanese mending and patchwork techniques. Rosa will touch on the importance of mending and using scraps while living in a world of waste from fast fashion.
