    Tutor: Liz Powell

    Enrollments close 1 October 2017

    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.
