Dolls of Canada's North (Sewing our Traditions)

Dolls of Canada's North (Sewing our Traditions)

Observers of children know that, for a child, anything can become a doll: a stick, a leaf, a bit of ragged leather, a peculiarly shaped stone, a tuft of fur.

Beneath the delights of doll play is a more serious and adult purpose: teaching children the skills that will be required when they grow up. By imitating their mothers, little girls learn how to feed, dress and care for a baby. They observe how a baby should be carried, whether in a cradle board or slunk into a hood or astride the hip. They also learn the technical skills needed to make clothes for the family - an art that is for the most part a woman's responsibility.

In the past, when everything was made by hand, children began very young, often by working alongside their mothers or grandmothers, to learn how to scrape and tan hides, spin thread and weave it into cloth, or sew boots with animal sinew. Much practice was required to transform a raw caribou skin or a handful of cedar bark into a neatly finished garment. making doll clothes was a way to learn these essential skills.

Sewing our Traditions is a collection of hand-made dolls created by Inuit and First Nations from across the Canadian North. The dolls represent historical and contemporary perspectives on northern traditions, fashion and culture.

These dolls record and reflect Canadian life and customs. Using natural and modern materials the doll makers have created evocative portraits of their cultural identity. From tiny intricate details like beaded moccasins to locally trapped fur and home-tanned hide, the Yukon Arts Centre is excited to bring together these truly exceptional examples of fine craft from the three territories that are Canada's North.

Inuit Art: Bears Notecard Folio

Inuit Art: Bears Notecard Folio

On southwestern Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic territory of Nunavut, the artists of Cape Dorset have been making prints since 1959. Diverse print media have been employed over the years, including linoblock, copper engraving, etching/aquatint, and woodcut, but the studios’ mainstays are stonecut and lithography. In stonecut, artists bring their drawings to the studio, where skilled printmakers transfer their work to the stone printing surface. Editions are limited to fifty hand-pulled original prints. The beauty of the collaborative process is highlighted in the lithography studio, where artists may work directly on the litho stone or plate, consulting with the printmakers through the proofing stage. The studios are active from the fall each year through late spring, when editioning is completed and the staff takes the summer off, making frequent trips to their traditional camping areas on the land. The images reproduced in this folio are by the well-known Inuit artist Kananginak Pootoogook. A respected community elder, Kananginak has been contributing his work to the Kinngait (pronounced “King-ite”) studios since the first print collection was released in 1959. A keen observer of Arctic wildlife, he counts the polar bear as one of his favorite subjects.

Ten full-color blank notecards (5 each of 2 styles) with envelopes in a decorative folio. ISBN 978-0-7649-3349-3.

Inuit Art: Raven Dance Notecards

Inuit Art: Raven Dance Notecards

Cape Dorset, also known as Kinngait (pronounced “King-ite”) for its high, rolling hills, is a thriving Inuit community in the Canadian Arctic territory of Nunavut, about 1,200 miles due north of Toronto. It is home to the Kinngait Studios, which have been operating there for close to fifty years—the longest continuously running print studios in Canada. Drawing on the community’s wealth of artistic talent, a team of skilled Inuit printmakers work with the artists in editioning their work. The studios are active from the fall each year through late spring, at which time editioning is completed and the staff takes the summer off, making frequent trips out to their traditional camping areas on the land.

The studios are owned and managed by the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative, which also markets the work—both sculpture and prints—produced by its Inuit artist members to galleries throughout the world. Since its inception in 1959, the co-op has worked to promote the artistic expression of the Inuit by encouraging the exchange of ideas, techniques, and inspiration among artists from all over the world. Inuit artists have attained international recognition for artistic excellence. The notecards in this collection confirm their deserved reputation.
