New! Reflections on Traditional Textile Printing in the Diaspora
Speaker - Skye Louis
June 15th, 2023
7:00pm - 9:00pm
The history of dyes and printing is also a story of people, plants and places. The land we live on shapes our culture, and craft technologies are intimately tied to the geographies and ecologies they arise from. So what happens to these traditions when we leave our homelands? Skye is part of the Goan diaspora, studying textile printing traditions of the South Asian subcontinent. How might artists engage with traditional print practices and knowledge in a way that is authentic, accountable, and adaptive? Is it possible to apprentice with plants? What do we gain or lose when we practice our artforms in a diasporic context?
The instructor will cover:
Demo of immersion dyeing of mordant printed cloth
Discussion around craft traditions, land, and cultural transmission
Skye is a community-based printmaker and arts educator and frequently collaborates with local organizations. Skye focuses on making complex ideas and skills accessible through hands-on, interactive learning. Skye is a member of CADA’s Artist As Changemaker cohort and Alberta Printmakers.
