Where: 100 McCaul St, Floor 2, Great Hall

When: Monday, November 28, 2022
Time: 3pm-4pm

What to bring: A piece of cloth or paper (size A3).

Event description:

Block printing is one of the most environmentally-friendly methods of pattern-making when the right colours and supplies are employed, making it a fantastic choice for slow fashion. Through its use of natural dyes and low consumption of resources, is a very important reason to support this traditional art form.  

Rubber, linoleum, and wood are the most often used materials to make blocks. The blocks are then dipped in paint and pressed on fabric or paper. We can also achieve various patterns using things we have readily available at home. We can carve pattern on vegetables like potatoes, carrots, beet roots etc. using strings, bottle caps, leaves etc. also create interesting results. 

Let Ani know you’re attending and RSVP at the link!

About Kyle Sauve

A person working on artwork

Artist Kyle Sauve is a Rama First Nations band member who primarily works with quills and birch bark. Kyle began experimenting with porcupine quills in March 2020, during the initial stages of the Covid-19 pandemic. Without access to traditional teachers, he struggled to gather information about this art form. Following a few months of trial and error, Kyle began to grasp the fundamental principles of quillwork. 

Eventually, Kyle was able to connect with a number of talented Indigenous artists by establishing an online presence through various social media platforms, most notably Burl Tooshkenig of Sweetgrass and Cinnamon, who assisted him in expanding into various traditional mediums such as caribou hair tufting, and sweetgrass. 

Kyle's goal, now that he has amassed a wealth of knowledge from a variety of sources, is to meaningfully contribute to the revitalization of quillwork art form through educational opportunities for Indigenous people.

  • Be interested in urban exploration, public spaces, conceptual approaches to making and/or ephemeral & modest public interventions. 
  • Expect to make themselves available for around 20 hours of in-person work during the workshop’s run (Sept 21 to 27) this will include some scheduled meetings (TBC closer to the date, with some accommodation of participants’ schedules), as well as one-on-one and independent work (individual or small teams).  
  • Be energetic, collaborative, & curious  

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

  • Full contact information (Name, phone, and email) 
  • A brief statement/bio that introduces you and your creative practice (150 words)  
  • A written statement describing your interest in the workshop, what you think you will bring to the team, and how you feel this opportunity will contribute to your own development (250 words max) 

Gander describes the A Melted Snowman workshop: 
“Traditionally, semiotics categorises signs into two different categories: The Natural Sign and the Conventional Sign. A Natural Sign is something that communicates to you without the intention of communicating to you, much like a clue. Footsteps in the sand, a discarded shopping list, or desire lines in a landscape are all Natural Signs. A Conventional Sign is something that communicates to you with the intention of communicating to you, much like an advert. A traffic light, a painting, or a book are all Conventional Signs. Almost all art is a conventional sign, but what of art in public space, hidden art, outsider art, art that is quiet, subtle, silent, or just so seamlessly part of the fabric of a city or system that it doesn’t make itself easily visible? This is the art I am interested in. The art of ‘Parcours’, the art of ‘Treasure Hunts’ and the art that risks being missed. Not the art that is handed to us on a silver plate, but is searched for, uncovered, worked for and discovered. The art that crosses and escapes the traditional categorisation of signs. The art that is both Conventional and Natural in its language at the very same time. The art or the sign that is: A Melted Snowman.  

During the workshop we will identify interesting spaces and sign systems in a square mile of the city, producing physical encounters and signifiers in the city as well as a map and tour of these interventions, with foresight into finding new ways for defining ‘Art For The Public’ in public space, as opposed to the traditional equations associated with ‘Public Art’ as we know it. We will focus closely on artworks and interventions that crossover or stand between the ‘Natural’ and ‘Conventional' definitions, attempting to form a new system by which to categorise sign types; marrying up examples we find in the city with categories we invent, with the intention and possibility of collating the research and experiments in the form of a publication. A new Sign System for the outside world. 

Participants will require lots of energy, a week of intense dedication, a natural curiosity in the seemingly invisible, the ability to see ordinary things from diverse perspectives, and to know how to avoid procrastination.” 

This workshop is sponsored by Lanterra Developments, who has commissioned Gander to produce a permanent public artwork for their new Artists Alley development at 234 Simcoe Street.
