Special Events At Luckystone & On The Road


We welcome Australian textile artist Catherine O’Leary back to Luckystone!


a 3 day workshop with 

Fri, Sat, Sun September 14-16, 2018   9:30-5:00 pm

Fee $380

We had such fun with Catherine in her 2015 workshop, I was thrilled when she agreed to return from Melbourne to teach Bojagi at Luckystone!  I was first exposed to Bojagi through images of Catherine’s ethereal creations, and I’ve always been eager to learn more.  As a sewist, I love the sculptural quality- the play of line and transparent color possible with Bojagi and one of my favorite mediums- silk organza.  In addition to being a feltmaker and accomplished fine artist, Catherine has mastered the form of Bojagi. This is not a felting workshop, but inspiration is universal.





Catherine O’Leary is a textile artist with a passion for making innovative, beautiful garments. She has exhibited her Bojagi garments in Korea, Australia and the USA. Catherine also participated in exhibitions in the Bojagi Biennale in South Korea several times and was been included in the Bojagi exhibition at the MOCFA, San Francisco, 2011. She has taught extensively in Australia and internationally and has a unique approach to design and construction.  Catherine is the author of “From Felt to Fabric”, Lark Books and has been featured in and authored many publications.

Bojagi is an ancient Korean technique where fabrics are pieced together to create wrapping cloths. These Wrapping cloths were used to wrap many things from the daily life of a Korean.  Bojagi was also used in ceremonies. In contemporary times, Bojagi is still made in Korea and in other countries. 

We will use the Bojagi technique of piecing fabric together to create a desired object. Different ways of piecing fabric and sculpting garment shapes *using a sewing machine will be explored in this workshop. Layering of transparent fabrics, texture, and flattering garments will be an important feature of this workshop, with a focus on individual design. The outcome of the workshop will be either a jacket, shirt, dress, coat, or skirt

* The ability to use a sewing machine is essential.  Students must bring a well-working sewing machine and be familiar with its operation.
