Melbourne Korea Week Fashion parade .....

On the Melbourne Korea Week program there was a fabulous fashion show by fashion designer Hanbok Lynn who'd come from Korea to showcase her beautiful hanbok creations. 


They weren't made of Hanji but they were stunning.  Here's a glimpse of the creations and the details that I was able to capture.



 The children were adorable...

Then there were the details ......

Melbourne Korea Week celebrations ....

The Melbourne Korea Week Festival for 2016 has now come and gone.  
Life has been pretty hectic since I was contacted about 3 weeks ago by the Korean Consular General's Dept. in Melbourne  and asked if I'd be interested in exhibiting some of my work and if I so wished,  selling some pieces. I was taken aback at first but thought, what a great opportunity to get more known about Hanji and to introduce the fact that this Australian lady loves doing a traditional Korean craft. 
I didn't have many small pieces left in my studio so I worked really hard over the ensuing weeks to get everything done in the time frame I'd been given, and at the same time, making sure I had pieces that would travel well as I had to carry everything in my personal luggage on the plane trips over and back.

I photographed everything, packed them up very carefully and I, along with Ron my trusty husband and helper, headed for Melbourne on a 6 am flight last Friday, with over 40kgs of luggage.
