Saturday, March 25th, from 12.00pm to 2.00pm
In partnership with Enterprising Women Making Arts (EWMA) Gallery Gachet artists have been leading a diverse array of workshops on different themes and mediums. This month join Gallery Gachet exhibiting artist Sima Elizabeth Shefrin.
We all have stories to tell, especially about our health. Join artist and illustrator, Sima Elizabeth Shefrin to create tiny autobiographical fabric books. Elizabeth will guide you through the process of creating fabric images and telling your story. All materials are provided and no writing, sewing or artistic experience is necessary.
Sima Elizabeth Shefrin played as a toddler in the galleries of Italy, and has been creating art ever since. As well as occasional curating gigs, she has been working professionally as a visual artist for 35 years. Her international community art project The Middle East Peace Quilt toured North America from 1999 to 2010. More recently, Elizabeth has turned to book illustration and has five publications to her credit. Embroidered Cancer Comic, published by Singing Dragon, is the first book she has written as well as illustrated. It has been favourably reviewed in the Lancet, and praised by Judi Dench.
Workshops are free and open to women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside community. EWMA is located at 800 E Hastings, between Hawks and Campbell Ave.
