Coast Salish Printmaking with Eliot White-Hill
Well-Made Object Workshop
In-person Workshop: Coast Salish Printmaking with Eliot White-Hill
Saturday, June 18, 2022, 1 - 4 pm
Join Eliot White-Hill, Kwulasultun for an in-person linocut printmaking workshop! Eliot will talk about traditional Coast Salish art and tell stories as the class develops their own Coast Salish design and carves linoleum blocks for printmaking. Linocut printmaking is a simple and fun way to make prints. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting ink on. Stop by, enjoy the stories and art, and discussion and bring a print home with you!
Eliot White-Hill, Kwulasultun (he/him) is a Coast Salish artist and storyteller from the Snuneymuxw First Nation. He has roots with the Rice family of Penelakut, the Hamilton family of Hupacasath in the Nuu Chah Nulth world, and is of mixed Western European descent. His art practice is rooted in traditional Coast Salish style and he works to honour and celebrate the teachings and stories he has received and the Coast Salish world views. He feels strongly that sharing traditional art forms will create a connection between all peoples who experience them, a connection that creates space where empathy and understanding can flourish across cultural divides. He is currently residing on the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples as he completes his MFA at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
All materials will be supplied. If you want to print your design onto something other than paper, such as a t-shirt or tote bag, please bring it along.
