Images in translation: screen printing workshop

19 November, 2017, 10:30 am - 1:00 pm


When literature from around the world is translated into English, we gain not just a physical book, but a whole new host of descriptions of places, people and ideas. This half-day studio workshop gives you a chance to think about what is ‘found’ in translation, and to turn those ideas into beautiful screen prints! Olivia Hellewell, translator and researcher, will be encouraging us to think about languages, literature and what ideas we gain about another culture from reading. What images might form in our minds when we encounter certain books from different places.

Local artist Karoline Rerrie will lead participants through the creative process, making this a chance to learn a new technique, with no previous printing experience necessary. At the end of the session participants will be able to take away their prints and a new way of thinking about literature in translation!

This event is also being held at 2:00pm-4:30pm. 

This event is part of the series How to lose and find yourself in words.
