Pop in and Print: Screenprint your own Tote Bag

Starts - Wednesday 7 December 2022

Graphic designer, illustrator and artist Khalid Mezaina established his personal practice in 2010, focusing on illustration and surface-based design and art. He actively participates in exhibitions, projects and residencies both in the UAE and abroad. He also facilitates workshops for children and adults, sharing his knowledge on print-based creative practices. Along with a BS in Visual Communication from the American University of Sharjah, Khalid holds a MFA in Textiles from Rhode Island School of Design, USA. His commissioned and self-initiated projects range from prints, installations and murals, to designs for publications, stationery, packaging, apparel and textiles. His works are a reflection of his influences and personal interests, as well as things that are on his mind – a nod to comic books, music and dance, traditional costumes and textiles from around the world, the impact of matriarchy in his life and daily findings from around the city he calls home. Khalid hopes that his work reaches a wider audience that moves beyond gallery walls and exhibitions spaces and puts a smile on people’s faces.

Join graphic designer, illustrator and artist Khalid Mezaina for a fun and communal screenprinting workshop for artists of all levels, from beginners to advanced, aged 15 years and above.

Participants will be guided by Khalid to develop basic geometric shapes and create a semi-abstract composition to honour the beauty of Dubai. Participants will then be walked through the screenprinting process; learning how to transfer their designs onto screens using the UV Exposure Unit before printing them on fabric. The result will be a series of beautiful custom tote bags that participants can use every day!

By the end of the workshop, participants will have gained a basic understanding of the process of screenprinting on fabric and be confident to apply the basics in their art practice.
