Announcing 2019 ACTA Apprenticeship Default Category

I am happy to announce that I am a recipient of the Alliance for California TRaditional Arts' (ACTA's) Apprentice Program 2019. I will work with

Steph Rue and we will do an in-depth study of bojagi. Steph is a book artist and a papermaker. She makes Hanji and share her knowledge with people by teaching and lectures. We were connected through bojagi, and excited to study together this year. As we study bojagi, we plan to have an exhibition or public demonstratio at the end of this year. I will update more details once we start our study. Stay tuned!

Misik Kim and Mirka Knaster co-curated "Korean Voices in Fiber"and I was happy to help the project as a language liaison. 25 Korean fiber artists are showing modern interpretation of their tradition, heritage and rich culture.  This exhibition will travel around the Northern California until next spring.
