Digital & Textiles Workshop with Shaheer Zazai

This online workshop offers the opportunity to create patterns and designs with digital images and textiles. Artist Shaheer Zazai will discuss his process and encourage participants to experiment with a variety of digital designs using Microsoft Word and Google Docs. Participants will learn more about and play with the visual vocabulary of colours and numbers that exist both in digital images as well as textiles.

This free program is open to everyone. It will be hosted on Zoom, with captions. If you have other accommodation needs, please let us know through the registration form or contact After registering, attendees will be provided with a Zoom link to use to join the workshop virtually.

This workshop uses Microsoft Word or Google Docs. If accessing either software is an issue, participants are also welcome to work with blank paper or graph paper and various coloured highlighters.


Shaheer Zazai is a Toronto-based Afghan-Canadian artist with a current studio practice both in painting and digital media. His practice focuses on exploring and attempting to investigate the development of cultural identity in the present geopolitical climate and diaspora.
