About the Class or Event
Inspired by the traditional bamboo fans of Korea, Jongkuk Lee has developed his own style of fans using Hanji (paper made from the bark of mulberry trees). The fan design came from his reflection on Korean moon jars with beautiful round shapes, smooth white surfaces as well as slight asymmetry from top to bottom. During this workshop, each attendee will make a fan and a simple bamboo brush to decorate the fan with. Hanji will be cut using water and stretched over a bamboo frame and glued with paste. Pre-made Bamboo frame, which is bent over fire will be provided by Jongkuk Lee. Bamboo brush will be made by cutting the tips and tying soft fabric over the tips so that these makeshift bamboo pens function similar to traditional calligraphy brushes. The fans come with a slight concave contour which can contain and carry the breeze.
Class will be held in our large and well lit Plummer Studio.
