Meet Sharon Chin, the artist of ‘Local Flora‘, and print your own pattern with her and her collaborators, Bogus Merchandise.

In this workshop, participants are invited to take a peek into the process of creating ‘Local Flora’, both from a pattern design and conceptual perspective, and how these patterns were brought to life through screen-printing on used fabrics.

There will be a screening of two videos selected by Sharon:

‘Between Memory and Museum’ (20 mins), a short film produced by Tara Books, an independent book publisher based in Chennai, India. Their extraordinary books are made in collaboration with local artists and craftspeople.

‘Marthe Armitage: Back to the Drawing Board’ (8 mins), about the British designer who produces wallpaper printed from linoblocks carved from her own hand-drawn designs.

This will be followed by a short conversation between Sharon, guest curator Sharmin Parameswaran, and Syahidah Nawar Ismail and Sanan Anuar of Bogus Merchandise.

Finally, there will be a screen-printing demonstration using the actual patterns featured in ‘Local Flora’. For those interested in making their own print, bring along a piece of fabric with you (preferably light-coloured and larger than A3 size) and you will be able to print a piece of Local Flora for yourself (and take it home with you)!
