New Meetup: Korean Wrapping Scarf Reimagined: Bojagi Presentation

From: Paul
Sent on: Thursday, February 18, 2010 8:11 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for Fun Korean Culture, Language, Music & Food (& ESL) DC VA MD!

What: Korean Wrapping Scarf Reimagined: Bojagi Presentation

When: Thursday, February 25,[masked]:30 PM

Where: (KORUS House, Washington DC.)

This event also requires a separate registration at KORUS house. Their event description & RSVP information can be found here on this event link.

The KORUS house event description starts: "Korean people have for centuries wrapped parcels and gifts in reusable fabric scarves called bojagi. Without the need for disposable paper wrapping or bags, bojagi represent an efficient and environmentally friendly way to package many items for carrying. In addition, the care one puts into wrapping and presenting a gift in an attractive bojagi?or bo, for short?is considered to bring added luck, not to mention its artistic presentation. Today?s stylish bojagi may look somewhat more modern that their traditional counterparts, but the result is the same: beauty and practicality in a single package."

The overview will be done by KORUS House's artist & designer Patricia Lee, covering traditional and modern "sustainable" designs.

The location is KORUS House ? 2370 Massachusetts Ave. NW Washington DC 20008. RSVP's are also possible through email or phone to Adam Wojciechowicz at AWOJ (at) koreaembassy.org or (202) 587-6168.



More information about bojagi also spelled pojagi can be found here on Wikipedia.
