Spring is in the air!

March was another wet month and my backyard is happy with lots of green, pink, purple, and orange!

This month I will keep teaching bojagi classes at the Claire Lilienthal school for a few more weeks, then we will show all the works that we made during the class. Oakland Asian Cultural Center has the Asian Pacific American Heritage Festival in May. We will show our students’ bojagi work at their showcase. The event is from April 27th until June 2nd. 

Basic Bojagi Class session I is in full swing now and we are having fun on Sundays! Basic Bojagi Class session II will be on Saturdays during May, June, and July. I will take the first 6 people who sign up. Current participants have priority to sign up. If you are interested in taking the class, click here and let me know. This class fills up fast!

Korea textile Tour 2019 is full now but you can sign up for the waitlist and future announcements.

Reading suggestion

Stone House on Jeju Island – Improvising Life Under a Healing Moon. 
Brenda Paik Sunoo came to Oakland last week for her book talk and I had a great time attending this very special evening of conversation, dance and good food. I even won a raffle so came back home with Innovatus wine from Napa! 

Happy Spring!
