Workshop description.

The National accessArts Centre invites artists to take part in our third online workshop series of 2021. During these two-hour online workshops, artist Cindy Baker will use materials included in our hand-delivered workshop kits to demonstrate the process of DIY screen printing!

Screen printing is an art form in which an image is stenciled onto a screen so that it can be printed onto another surface. It produces a result that is bold and graphic and is how many t-shirts and other wearable and fabric items are printed. One of the most useful and fun aspects of screen printing is that you can use it to create multiples of the same image or to create a repeating pattern. In this workshop, artist Cindy Baker will help you make your own silkscreen, come up with a simple and graphic one or two colour design, transfer it onto the screen, and create one-of-a-kind prints and wearable art with your design on it.

Please note: workshop kits and attendance is limited. Workshop registration is capped at 10 artists per workshop. Don’t delay! Workshop kits will be delivered at the same time as our March fluxkit.

Workshop attendance is limited to 10 spots per workshop. No additional fee to participate.

Cindy Baker is a contemporary artist based in Western Canada whose work engages with queer, gender, race, disability, fat, and art discourses. Committed to ethical community engagement and critical social inquiry, Baker’s interdisciplinary research-based practice draws upon 25 years of working, volunteering, and organizing in the communities of which she is part. She moves fluidly between the arts, humanities, and social sciences, emphasizing the theoretical and conceptual over material concerns. Baker holds an MFA from the University of Lethbridge where she received a SSHRC grant for her research in performance in the absence of the artist’s body; she has exhibited and performed across Canada and internationally. Helping found important community and advocacy organizations over the course of her career, Baker maintains a lifelong commitment to the strength and vitality of her communities.
