This workshop will show you how to use different kinds of plants to create prints on paper. Not only can we learn what kind of plants are around us, we can appreciate the natural essence and shapes these plants make. Participants will learn how to print plants and leaves found in or outside their homes onto cards, postcards and cloth. They will also learn about the origins of the plants around them and discover the Indigenous names for some common urban plants. Plants and materials will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own plants to print with.

Workshop facilitator: Laura Grier is a Délı̨nę Dene artist and printmaker, born in Somba ké (Yellowknife), and raised in Alberta. Through the use of traditional print mediums, they instrumentalize the power of the handmade to reflect various Indigenous methodologies. They hold a BFA from NSCADU and an MFA from OCAD University.
