Friday Showcase with Claire Jeon Tarim - Friday 6 July

Claire Jeon Tarim is the presenter for our July Friday Showcase.

Born of architect and calligrapher parents, it came as no surprise to Claire that she and her brothers and sisters developed artistic skills and that three of the four siblings of the family graduated with art degrees.

Claire’s major studies in illustration and design led to her early work in freelance illustrating.  Her love of natural fabrics, texture and colour now  combine in her silk and ramie Jogakbo (‘jogak' the Korean word for pieces and ‘bo' translating as wrapping cloth), the creation of which she says brings her both mental and physical pleasure.  We look forward to seeing a range of Claire’s Jogakbo pieces, which highlight the combination of exquisite fabric with featured hand-stitched seams.

Friday Showcase is held on the first Friday of most months at our QuiltNSW office, 276 Pitt Street, Sydney, close to Town Hall Station.  Claire's’s presentation this Friday, July 6, starts at 10am, with an entrance fee of $5 for members and $10 for guests.
