Waiting for Spring 

I can't believe how much rain we got last month! I love seeing all the green around me, and watching the seasons change!
I am happy to announce that I am a recipient of the Alliance for California Traditional Arts' (ACTA's) Apprenticeship 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 bojagi together this year. As we study bojagi, we plan to have an exhibition or public demonstration at the end of this year. I will update more details once we start our study. Stay Tuned!

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

Reading suggestion of this month

Moon Tides 
Jeju Island Grannies of the Sea

Brenda Paik Sunoo with Youngsook Han
I picked up this book from my coffee table, dusted it off, and started to read again. I met Brenda Paik Sunoo in 2014 when I attended Korea Bojagi Forum in Jeju. We spent a very short time together during the conference but I could feel her love for Jeju Island. Haenyeo, the free divers of Jeju Island, harvest seaweed and shellfish in the sea. Here is a link that you can take a peek. Hope you can enjoy learning something new about Korea and Korean culture.

Happy Lunar New Year
View this email in your browser

While I teach, I learn

 

January 2019 was a great start to another meaningful and creative year, full of plans and to-do lists. I feel lucky to enjoy one day a week with younger people sharing bojagi. They amaze me and motivating me since I started meeting them in 2012. I get positive energy from them and learn more than I teach. 

Lunar New Year comes early this year and it is Feb. 5th. Thinking of another bowl of rice cake soup makes me happy, even though I will get another year older.
On Sunday, Feb. 10th, I will celebrate Lunar New Year at the Oakland Museum making Saekdong Bok jumeoni with museum visitors. Please come and enjoy the festivities and make your own Bok jumeoni!

Basic Bojagi Class during March and April is full now. I will plan more bojagi classes at my home studio in May and June. These will be on Saturday mornings. Stay tuned for a future announcement.

Reading recommendation: I've been asked for recommendations for people who want to know more about Korea and its culture. Here's an updated book by Daniel Tudor, a Seoul-based author and journalist. I have an older edition and curious about what the updates included.

Welcome, year of the pig!

Time to wrap up...


...this year and welcome another one! I had a very busy but fulfilling year. I had many wonderful chances to expand my horizon and opportunities to step out of my comfort zone. These encouraged me to try new things and led me to grow a little more. I appreciate your love and support. In 2019, I hope you all have a creative and joyous year!
