$250, includes materials
Weekend: Saturday - Sunday, 11:00am - 4:00pm
October 30 - October 31, 2021
Instructor: Khadijah Morley
Do you collect decorative papers that you insist will come in handy but never use? Chine-collé can help! In this class, you will learn the basics of linocut and use the Chine-collé method to incorporate swatches of colour or texture without carving an additional lino block. This technique involves adhering thinner papers to the overall piece through the process of printmaking.
Suitable for all levels, no prior experience is needed.
About the Print Instructor
Khadijah Morley (she/her) is a Tkaronto (Toronto) based artist nearing the completion of a BFA in Drawing and Painting, and minor in Printmaking at OCAD University. Through the process of etching and relief printing, Khadijah explores the complexities of Black womanhood through an autobiographical lens. She often uses self-portraiture to deconstruct the fallacy of a Black monolithic experience. She hopes that her subject matter serves to expand discourse surrounding Black subjectivity. Khadijah's work invokes notions of hooks' oppositional gaze and Du Bois' double consciousness.
