Event description

Description

This art restorative workshop will use linoleum carvings as storytelling our journey within our growth. Participants will learn how to transfer and create four images that represents their inner growth and journey. Participants will also explore how block printing and carving is restorative to coexisting and growing past our traumas in a peaceful method.

*Legacy is defined here as the told and untold stories of our liberation held within our bodies. Often times untold stories are passed down generations until we decide to speak up and share them.
