Printmaking Workshop with Ivy Cargill-Martin Carving on the Edge Festival

From 10 am-4 pm, join the Carving on the Edge Festival and Ivy Cargill-Martin for a day to design, carve, and print your very own Lino cut at the Tofino Community Hall, Multi-Purpose Room!

Come with a creative mind to express yourself through art! This workshop is for all levels of experience.

Only 12 spots are available. Admission by donation (workshop is valued at $150). All supplies are provided, including the linoleum block, sharp carving tools, and ink. Please bring your own lunch, snacks, and water.

Lino carving, also known as lino printing or linocut, is a printmaking technique. In this technique, a design is carved into a linoleum block, which is then inked using a brayer (hand ink roller) and printed onto paper or fabric.

Ivy Cargill-Martin

Born on Vancouver Island and raised on an off-grid float house in her own Tla-o-qui-aht Territory, Ivy has grown up with two very artistic parents. Her mother Robin Cargill, a “jill of all trades” in the art world, and her father Carl Martin, a Tla-o-qui-aht master canoe carver. From a young age, she found inspiration in every direction and was drawn to art as a form of self-expression. She learnt different techniques and art forms from her parents, friends, and family. Her explorations of drawing and painting grew to include carving, crochet, embroidery, block printing, jewelry, sculpture, and even traditional hand poked tattoos. She is constantly looking for new inspiration through art and expanding her artistic portfolio.

Drawing on her Art of Hosting training and graphic recording skills, she has recently immersed herself in arts-based community facilitation through creating visual representations of stories being shared. She loves the practice because it reminds her of how Tla-o-qui-aht people would have recorded important teachings and histories in the past. She hopes to continue to carve her own path in the arts sector and is eager for the opportunities and connections that Carving on the Edge will provide.
