Join artist Miya Turnbull,exhibiting in Like everything alive that we try to hold forever, for an unusual Origami workshop where we will fold several different designs, including a frog and butterfly, using paper printed with the artist’s face. Combining traditional designs and self-portraiture, Turnbull uses this approach in her work in conjunction with her mask-making practice.

No prior Origami folding experience needed. Participants can keep their folded creations to take home.

Miya Turnbull is a multi-disciplinary visual artist of mixed Japanese-Canadian ancestry. She grew up on a farm near Onoway, Alberta, and graduated from the University of Lethbridge with a BFA. She has been based in Kjipuktuk (Halifax) for the past twenty years. She works with many different mediums, but is primarily a mask artist, and new to her practice is performance. She focuses on self-portraits, using her photo-mask technique to make life-like variations and representations of her face, often distorting and manipulating her image as a way to explore identity.
