Name: CLASS (On-Line): Saeksilnubi ????
Date: June 1, 2022 - June 2, 2022
Event Description:
 
Saeksilnubi, colored thread quilting is a Korean traditional craft that uses two layers of fabrics, cords made with hanji (Korean mulberry paper), and colorful threads to make quilted texture.
 
Hanji cord or cotton cord were used as a batting or stuffing. Repetition of lines created with Bageumjil (back stitch) and Hanji cord make geometrical pattern and raised texture. This technique strengthened the fabric and protected from humidity.
 
Saeksilnibi was used to make practical objects such as small pouches to store and carry tobacco, flint stone and metal, pin cushion, glasses case, and paper sock patterns.
