About the workshop
During this edition you can make your own lino cut print based on the theme of togetherness. When is it a means for connection and solidarity, and when does it strike out and involve processes of inclusion and exclusion? Free snacks and drinks included.
About the hosts: Sophia Pekowsky & Elfi Scheefhals
Sophia Pewkosky is a creative program coordinator passionate about using linocut printing as a tool for reflection, research, and activism. She has collaborated on lino workshops with activist groups and institutions, such as De Voorkamer. During her Masters in Gender Studies she used linocut printing as an art based research method to investigate the experiences and perceptions of the postpartum period. She currently works as a program coordinator at the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) Amsterdam and co-creates activist projects related to textiles in the Crafting Resistance Collective.
Elfi Scheefhals is a Gender Studies scholar and mixed media artist who researches conceptions of normalcy in the Netherlands and works mostly with lino printing, textile, paper, and paint. They bring the questioning of normative societal expectations, habits, language, and identity from research into their art by reimagining the mundane through a critical, colorful, nostalgic lens. In their crafting/lino workshops, both as an individual host and in collaboration with Sophia, they are passionate to cultivate spaces for accessible artistic creation and connection with others.
