Joomchi is a traditional Korean technique that could broadly be described as felting paper. I give this method a distinctly Australian twist by combining locally sourced fibres in handmade papers with easily purchased Thai kozo sheets rather than using only hanji (dyed Korean dak fibre). I also take the pain out of the labour intensive process by using my feet!

My original teacher Jiyoung Chung has been impressed (and entertained) by this approach and has invited me to participate regularly in international joomchi exhibitions in USA and Korea.
Over the two days of the workshop we will make a number of small joomchi pieces. Keeping the scale down will allow us process a number of pieces at a time and to play with creating transparent and shattered layers, voids and patches, inclusions and threads, and surface finishes including oiling, cold waxing and staining. All in two days!

The lovely leathery quality of the finished paper makes it versatile for many applications with other media as well as a material all of its own.
