Bursaries are full.
During this introductory printmaking course, adults and youth (13+) reflect on the prints in the current exhibition Emergence and get hands-on experience with different methods of printmaking including screen printing, stencil, relief printing and their own experimental combination.
Participants end the course with a small body of work and the skills to continue their printmaking practice at home! All materials are included in the course fee.
Abby Nowakowski (she/they) is a queer interdisciplinary artist and art educator currently living and working in Sharbot Lake and Katarokwi-Kingston. Through printmaking, illustration and handpoke tattooing, they spread advocacy for care, share stories, and make space for radical softness. Abby is drawn to the gentler pace of handpoke and takes a trauma-informed approach to tattooing which has fostered a safer and more empowering experience for clients. Driven by curiosity and kindness, their practice extends into art facilitation with a range of collaborations, workshops, and performances which radiate from queer ecologies and friendships.
