The lecture event will be the first opportunity for Vancouver students, artists and the general public to learn about both the traditional and contemporary craft of Korean papermaking by a renowned, published Korean artist.

In collaboration with the Crafts Council of British Columbia (CCBC), CSAA presents a lecture on Korean hanji papermaking in conjunction of the exhibition “Fibre, Naturally – Paper Like You Have Never Seen It Before” (August 11-16) at the Concourse Gallery, Emily Carr University. The exhibition features objects and garments made of Korean hanji paper by both B.C. and Korean artists.

Hanji samples will be available for audience to take home and make DIY Joomchi crafts.
