Fabric Printing Workshop with Joiri Minaya

Double Dutch artist Joiri Minaya shares her love of printing and fabric in a three-hour workshop that introduces participants to block printing, which is one of the oldest types of printmaking. Block printing has been around for thousands of years and is essentially done using a carved material covered with ink to transfer an image onto a flat surface – in this instance fabric. There are many different techniques and applications: it can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber and other materials. In this workshop participants will learn the basics of block printing, while also learning about the history of pattern design and some of the principles used to create the structures for repetition. We will have fabrics to try out your design, but you're free to bring a shirt or a piece of clothing of your own!
 
Joiri Minaya is a Dominican-American multi-disciplinary artist whose work deals with identity, otherness, self-consciousness and displacement.  Her work navigates binaries in search of in-betweenness, investigating the female body within constructions of identity, social space and hierarchies.

This workshop is suitable for persons 13 years and older. Children under 13 years must be accompanied by an adult. Materials are included. To reserve your place contact our education officer, Katrina Cartwright at kcartwright@nagb.org.bs

Cost: Adults $25, Children $10
