About This Event
This workshop is an exploration of materials and techniques popularized by Canadian Inuit artists working in Cape Dorset. The workshop will provide the instruction to create your very own “stonecut”, a form of relief printmaking that is being used till this day by artists residing in Cape Dorset.
The workshop will begin with a gallery visit to Napachie Pootoogook’s piece titled “Ball Game." From there we will talk briefly about the stonecut process; the remaining time will be for sketching/material exploration/printing. All levels of art are welcome, and no printmaking experience is required.
Recommended items not required: Simple drawing of what you wish to print (3”x3”), simple dust-mask, gouges (V and U work great), basic gloves, rotary tool if you wish to get experimental.
