Patterson-Appleton Arts Center

Spend the evening learning from local Materials Hard + Soft artist, Bumin Kim. Kim will lead participants through the traditional Korean fiber craft of Jumuni. Using fabric and sewing, participants will make a pouch. These pouches were used for wrapping fragile ceramic cups in order to bring them outside safely - tumblers and to-go cups didn't exist back then. Today, these Jumuni can be used to pack and wrap up trinkets and gifts for friends and family! All supplies will be provided. Space is limited, please register by February 20th by email at admin@dentonarts.com, call 940.382.2787, or follow the link below to register online.
