 Much Needed Break 

It has been so hectic lately, so last month, I decided to take it easy. I took some classes and spent some time with people that I love to hang out. I feel much better now and am ready to go back to my busy, creative routine. I will come back with new works next time!


Korea Textile Tour October 16-26, 2017 is all set. We are checking final details and the adventure is around the corner.

Sweet ReTreat 

How's your summer going? Mine was quite busy until last weekend. The Korean Voices in Fiber exhibition is in its second round at the Sebastopol Center for Arts gallery III ( July 28-September 3). Another exhibition at the Sebarts is going on and you don't want to miss it! FIBER ART VIII International Biennial Fiber Arts Exhibition shows many interesting fiber artworks, too.
After I helped hang our exhibition, I took a 3 day workshop organized by Slow Fiber Studio in Berkeley. 'Black, White, & Infinity: Sumi Ink, Silk, and Felt'. Using materials that I am not familiar with was difficult but I learned a lot and really enjoyed the whole process. My teacher Jorie Johnson who has been living in Kyoto for 27 years shared her techniques, knowledge and love of fiber with students. Nothing can be better than breathing creative energy! 
Currently I am taking another workshop with Karen Hapmton - 'The Mindful Stitch - Storytelling with Textiles'. And I refill my creative energy from this wonderful artist and teacher.
I hope you all have a wonderful and creative summer!

Our Korea Textile Tour is scheduled during October 16-26, 2017. This is a chance to taste of Korean art, craft, foods and rich culture in the heart of Seoul. The tour is currently full but send me an email if you want to participate in 2018 or near future.

Trip to Korea

I just came back from my trip to Japan and Korea. The weather was perfect for travelers and everywhere was covered with rich green leaves and trees. In Kyoto, I visited Gallery Kei and had a chance to see their annual special exhibition. It was an Exhibition of Asa (Mosi and Sambe) and I felt so lucky to get to see these old fabrics and clothes from the Edo period (1603-1867)!

In Korea, I went to Andong and visited the Andongpo center. Aodongpo is a type of fine hemp fabric that is only produced in the Andong region. I also was able to visit a store that carries naturally dyed fabrics. In Seoul, I saw indigo dye work by the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Dying and a hanbok exhibition by the Master Artisan of Needlework. 

The 'Korean Voices of Fiber' exhibition, showing 25 fiber artists' works, is opening on Saturday, June 10th 4-6:30 pm at the Sacramento Fine Art Center. Please come and celebrate with me!
