Saturday 24 April, 4.30-6.30pm, Jogakbo workshop with Steven Junil Park

This class with Steven Junil Park takes place in our workshop at the Arts Centre, which is located upstairs in the 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.

There are 8 places available in this workshop. This class is suitable for adults.

Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.


About your tutor

Steven Junil Park is based in Ōtautahi Christchurch, and is currently a part-time resident in the Rekindle workshop funded by Creative New Zealand. He can be found working there most Thursdays. He is the pair of hands behind the label '6x4' under which he explores all manner of objects to do with human living, focusing on apparel. His practice explores and masters object-making including clothing, jewellery, shoes and furniture. He makes individual works that often feature reused, natural dyed, or locally found materials.    @6x4online


Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.

This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants


We are grateful for the support of CNZ, which has allowed us to offer this class at a subsidised rate.
