About the Workshop
Join us for an immersive and creative journey into the world of wheat pasting at our engaging workshop, part of the Chinatown, the Best! Talking Walls exhibition program! Wheatpasting is an art form that blends street art and traditional craft, allowing participants to transform urban landscapes into vibrant expressions of creativity.
During this hands-on workshop, you'll discover the history and significance of wheat pasting in the context of Toronto Chinatown's history and street art culture. Amy Shuang Wang and Rick Wong, members of the Long Time No See Chinatown Collective, will guide you through the entire process, from selecting the perfect images and designs to mastering pasting them onto public surfaces.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own materials, including prints of family photographs and images that tell stories of immigration. Whether you're a seasoned artist or a complete beginner, this workshop is designed to cater to all skill levels. By the end of the workshop, you'll have learned the ins and outs of wheat pasting and contributed to a public art piece to share with the world.
All materials and equipment will be provided. Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather and mobility - you may get paste on your clothing but it is water soluble. Please contact Amy Shuang Wang if you have any questions regarding the workshop.
