Another New year's celebration Bojagi

Last Sunday, I went to Oakland Museum to participate the Lunar New Year celebration festival.
Oakland museum was beautifully remodeled and I was so lucky to get a right spot to demonstrate my works. It was the art gallery right in front of this energetic composition of the colors! I should go back and see all the artworks in that art gallery some time. Because I was busy during that day so couldn't even look around.

People always like to hear about the history of  bojagi, how it works and how to make, etc.
The name Bojagi means, wrapping cloth in Korean.
I always bring  bojagi that I can show how to wrap, cover, carry and store objects.
This boajgi is used for covering the chest.
And this one is for wrapping presents.
These are especially for gift money!

When people make Bojagi in old days, they wished happiness of the recipients.
Imagine that every single stitch has a  blessing and a prayer! I can feel the power of love from Bojagi.
I am starting the new year with another Bojagi project and wish you all a happy and prosperous year!
