A hands-on workshop led by Syrian artist Dima Karout where participants are invited to create, carve and print patterns to form a collective artwork. Using memories of cities visited or lived in, seeking inspiration in personal experience, visual memory, family objects and photos, participants will create a simplified sketch, before carving the drawings into pieces of linoleum that will be inked and printed. By the end of the workshop, everyone will create various prints that they will sign and keep.
