Workshop topic: Contemporary hand sewing
Languages: French flag English flag
Nb of students: 15

This is not a patchwork quilt made using traditional sewing methods, hand saw or sewing machine. It is a reversible work that uses a soldering iron to make a minimal seam allowance (almost no seam allowance), and even when working with two or three layers of fabric, both sides are the same or both sides are completed as a work of art. This is a popular work, especially because it allows for free quilting without calculation and can produce effects similar to the traditional Korean bojagi technique.

The teacher

JongKyeong Lee is a Korean textile artist who has been teaching traditional and contemporary quilting for more than 20 years and has worked mainly on art quilting and textile art. She likes to express them in a fairy-tale and lyrical way with a modern and simplified design on the theme of "trees and houses". She also likes to find and develop various materials and new techniques, and apply them more creatively to textile artworks so that both she and the public can feel fresh. Recently, she immersed herself in making an organza patchwork using a burning technique with a soldering iron rather than the traditional sewing method.
