hanbok class

june 2019
silk screen fabric mesh, satin
made for Hanbok @ MICA

'Hanbok' was a 2-week intensive summer sewing course taught at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where I and 7 other students learned the history and construction of various traditional Korean garments. For the final exhibit I created my own take on the traditional jeogori. By making the shape slightly more boxy, the sleeves shorter, and attaching 4 goreum [instead of 1] to the piece, I wanted to create a piece that honored the traditional while adding new elements. I exhibited this piece along with Song Jihye's [a fellow classmate] gat, a traditional Korean hat worn by men in the Joseon period. Other pieces made in class included somae, baeja, and hand-dyed scarves [pictured here].
