In response to Kenneth Lam’s current exhibition, A seat at our table, artist Gal Leshem will lead a printmaking session that transforms everyday objects and scrap materials into surprising tools for printing and mark making. The workshop will invite participants to use found objects to make personal mono-prints that reflect on their sense of home and belonging. We will experiment with the textures on unconventional surfaces, create interesting compositions and layers of colour, while addressing the past life and uses of the objects we are working with.
