Maedeup Monday!


This Fall I will be again teaching maedeup classes at the White Bear Center for the Arts. I am adding two new knots: saengjjok and garakji maedeup. Since these are more complicated, the entire class will be learning to master the knots. The photo above is the saengjjok maedeup.

This is a photo of the garakji maedeup. Both these knots require the use of an awl. Rocketman is going to South Korea next month and I’m comprising a list of things for him to pick up at the maedeup shop. I will be selling awls and loop turners in my Etsy shop very soon.

The Fall schedule hasn’t been released yet but here are the classes I will be teaching:

Maedeup
(Korean knotting)
Becky Meverden

Maedeup uses cording to create simple to elaborate
knots that can be used in jewelry, accessories, home
décor or just about anything you can imagine. This
instructor lived in South Korea for two years learning
this ancient art. In these classes, students will be
learning four of the most basic maedeup knots:
hapjong, dorae, saengjjok, and garakji. Each class can be taken
independently of the other. Students will complete a
bracelet during the class. No experience necessary.

Becky is also the author of “Elegant Knotted Jewelry –
Techniques and Projects Using Maedeup.” This is her
9th book and she has also appeared regularly on HGTV’s
The Carol Duvall Show.

    Garakji I got after a while, and I could reproduce it pretty easily.Saengjjok, on the other hand, took me forever to get….and I only got it that once. It was really hard! I'm looking forward to getting back into maedeup again, though. Exciting about your class. Hope to see some students' work.

    Becky I am enjoying your blog so much! This "maedeup" knotting looks like tons of fun. I have relatives near where you are, if I ever visit them again, I will let you know and try to attend one of your fun classes. I loved reading about your time with your grandson, too. We have 10 grandchildren and love to spend time with the small ones like Noah.
