Join Fei Gao in learning the basics of stone lithography: grinding, drawing, etching, proofing and printing of black/white prints on paper. The focus of the workshop is to gain confidence in this technique that is still thought to be a magic trick of ‘chemische druckerei’. This workshop will be taught in Mandarin.

Fei Gao was born in Beijing, China, and has lived in Canada for over ten years. She received a bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of Alberta (Edmonton) in 2012. Her studies included the mediums of painting, printmaking, sculpture, and illustration. Working primarily in stone lithography, Gao joined the international emerging artists exchange project with the China Academy of Art's printmaking department in 2017. The root of her work lies within observation and personal feelings. Using stone lithography, Gao is able to reproduce the finest marks from her original drawings. In her most recent work, she creates lithographic drawings of strings as a metaphor for interpersonal relationships.
