Online Workshop: Formline Design and Discussion with Arlene Ness

This online workshop is available only in Canada.
Saturday, July 17, 2021, 1 - 3 pm

Formline design is integral to Indigenous Northwest Coast art. While the designs vary, the ovoid and U-shape can be consistently found within carvings, weavings, and other mediums. In this online workshop, join Gitxsan artist Arlene Ness, as she demonstrates her knowledge with formline design. Participants will receive a design pre-made by Ness, and will paint her design as she engages in a discussion regarding the traditional art form.

Arlene Ness (Gitxsan) is a multimedia artist who translates traditional stories into painting and carving to illustrate her Gitxsan ancestry. She is one of the six artists currently featured in Hands of Knowledge at the Bill Reid Gallery, a collaborative exhibition featuring Indigenous women from northern BC.
