Jogakbo, a traditional Korean wrapping cloth, is crafted from scraps of fabric left over from making the Hanbok, Korea’s national costume. Jogak Whakatōpū showcases Jogakbo finely crafted with hands using natural fabrics from Korea by Atti’ Pōneke group. Atti’ means friends in Korean, and we all share a passion for Jogakbo. We gather twice a month to share ideas and encourage each other while making our pieces.
We now call Aotearoa our home, but it is crucial to know our roots and be proud of who we are.These Jogakbo pieces feature geometric patterns created with fine hand-sewing, representing our identity and embodying a wonderful harmony and balance, much like multicultural Aotearoa. As part of the exhibition, we'll ; host a workshop on making Jumeoni, a traditional Korean pouch, to celebrate the Lunar New Year and wish for good luck in the coming year.
