About

Join artist and tutor, Sara Cook, and learn how to make this simple Jogakbo light catcher inspired by Korean pieced patchwork known as bojagi.

During the class, you will receive step-by-step guidance and practical tips on how to use silk organza, the best way to cut and handle this fabric and sew together using the Korean Kkekki seam, a fine triple stitched and folded seam that encloses all the raw edges, to make your own light catcher.

You can continue adding pieces to your light catcher to make a bigger project or start one of your own designs. During the session participants will decorate this piece with Bakjwi, the bat symbol for good luck.

You will see how Sara uses this seam when creating her own larger pieces of work. You can complete your mini hanging or continue adding to it to make a larger piece. Hang your finished piece at a window and see the light shine through the cheering colours.

What you will learn:

  • Sara will tell you about how bojagi, wrapping cloths were traditionally used in a Korean home.
  • You will use silk organza and learn how to make the Korean Kkekki seam, a fine triple stitched and folded seam that encloses all the raw edges.
  • Sara will demonstrate step by step instructions on how to make the seam.
  • Tips on the best way to cut, piece and handle these fabrics.
  • She will show you how to make and apply the Bakjwi, bat symbols for good luck.
Materials & Preparation

Materials

  • Recommended Kit: The Silk Route www.thesilkroute.co.uk (£5.85 plus P&P).
  • Sewing machine.
  • 70 Microtex sewing machine needle
  • 50 weight mid grey or beige thread
  • A hera marker tool (Creaser) or you can use the edge of your iron instead
  • Small iron and ironing pad
  • Rotary cutting mat, 12” x 4” ruler and cutter with a new blade)
  • Two bunnies. These are two pieces of scrap patchwork fabric, 3” x 1.5” each folded into three. We will use these to start and finish each seam.
  • A hand sewing needle already threaded with a double thread with a knot on the end.
  • A thimble, useful to have on standby!

Preparation

  • Purchase your kit.
  • Clean your machine and thread with the same colour and weight of thread top and bottom.
  • Spray starch the organza before you cut
  • Your cutting mat needs to be clean and smooth. Rough edges catch on the silk organza and make cutting more difficult.
  • Use your rotary cutter to cut the fabric pieces into the following sizes:
    • Yellow/Gold: 4” x 11” (10cm)
    • Green/Verdigris: 6” x 7” (15cm)
    • Hot Pink: 6” x 5” (15cm)
  • Cut three 2” (5cm) squares, one from each coloured piece of organza. We will use these to make the decorative bat symbols.
