Made In Water: Indigenous Papermaking, Histories, and Stories – Dakota Mace

Dates: July 10 – 14, 2023
Studio: Papermaking
Tuition: Sliding Scale, $350-$1200
Lab fee: $100
Class limit: 8

This workshop will combine Indigenous histories and the social impact of paper within Indigenous communities. We will discuss Indigenous histories related to papermaking and cover readings from Indigenous scholars. This workshop will take participants through the process of creating handmade paper while also learning the imprint of natural materials through the cyanotype process.

Each participant will be given the opportunity to engage and learn about Indigenous knowledge systems and work with natural materials to create paper. For Indigenous people, there is a special relationship between land and the materials that come from their ancestral homes.

Participants will learn about Indigenous artists such as Mikayla Patton, Tamara Lee-Anne Cardinal, Genaro Fuentes, Trejo, and many more who utilize handmade paper within their work. These artists show the deep connection that they share with their identity and the indigenization of the process of papermaking.

Dakota Mace

Dakota Mace (Diné) is an interdisciplinary artist whose work focuses on translating the language of Diné history and beliefs. Mace received her MA and MFA degrees in Photography and Textile Design at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her BFA in Photography from the Institute of American Indian Arts. As a Diné (Navajo) artist, her work draws from the history of her Diné heritage, exploring the themes of family lineage, community, and identity. In addition, her work pushes the viewer’s understanding of Diné culture through alternative photography techniques, weaving, beadwork, and papermaking.
