Storytelling Through Patterns: Stamp Printing Workshop
Warehouse421 will be hosting a workshop conducted by Emirati artist Khalid Mezaina. The workshop will begin with a short presentation on patterns and their function and application. After a quick demonstration on how to create a stamp, participants will apply their stamp designs as a repeat pattern onto their chosen surface, experimenting with printing various pattern layouts such as grid, half drop or engineered pattern applications.
Participants will then work towards creating one or two stamps and use them to print a repeat pattern on a plain textile or paper surface of their choice of surface. They will also learn how to communicate a pattern design, to communicate a message or story.
*Open to ages 15 and above
