Creative energy is in the air!


Happy May! I just came back home from my annual creative retreat, Empty Spools Seminars in Asilomar, near Pacific Grove, California. Five days of taking 'Composition Quartet' from Sue Benner made me feel so happy and accomplished. It also was a wonderful time to breath creative air with like-minded people.

Before I left for this retreat, I finished teaching my Claire Lilienthal school students and installed their work at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. The exhibit is from April 29th to June 2nd. Please come and visit to see what my students created during 9 weeks of class. I am so proud of them!

It was an honor to be featured in theReverberate Podcast episode #9! Adrienne and Kristine of A Verb for Keeping Warm interviewed me and I had a great time talking about bojagi and myself as an artist. If you want to know a little more about either bojagi or me, please listen to this podcast! And if you enjoy the podcast, please check other episodes, too! 

Next week, I will go down to SoCal to attend Irvine Korean Festival and make wind chimes with visitors. Please come and make your own!

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

Reading suggestion

The Island of Sea Women
Another book about Jeju island! Lisa See's new book is the tale of two best friends. I am still reading this so I can't share much yet. But I am enjoying it. I hope you enjoy it, too!
