Irene Carvajal is a multidisciplinary Costa Rican-American artist, her art practice includes printmaking, collage, sculpture, video, performance and installation. Thematically her work touches on the intersectionality of colonialism, labor, feminism, value, mass production and environmentalism. She is an experimental, conceptual artist interested in materiality and meaning making through process and medium. Her research has led her to explore sustainable alternatives to traditional methods and materials.  In this workshop, Irene will explain how to make natural homemade inks with items commonly found in the home.
