Saturday 16 July, 4.30-6.30pm, Jogakbo

Come along and learn how the art of jogakbo with Steven Park in a class held at our Matatiki Toi Ora Arts Centre workshop, located upstairs in the former Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.

Jogakbo is a traditional Korean style of hand sewn patchwork made from small scraps of different textiles. They were used as domestic wrapping cloths and were meant to bring good luck to whatever was inside.

In this workshop you will learn how to prepare your scraps and the basic stitches that will allow you to make your very own jogakbo. Please bring some scraps of material that you would like to use in making your jogakbo.

This is a workshop suited for adults only, no children please. Masks are required for this workshop
