Join Alexandria Holm, Curatorial Project Coordinator of Printed Textiles from Kinngait Studios as she goes on a virtual studio tour with Martha Kyak of InukChic. As one of the fashion designers featured in the exhibition, Martha will welcome us into her sewing and dressmaking studio in Ottawa.
Alexandria Holm received her BA in Art History from McGill University and her MA in Art History from York University. As Curatorial Project Coordinator, she worked closely with Curatorial Lead Roxane Shaughnessy and was deeply involved in the research and planning of the exhibition.
Martha Kyak of InukChic is a self-taught artist and seamstress. She grew up in Pond Inlet, Nunavut, the youngest of eleven children. Her passion has always been sewing and designing as she grew up watching her mother and sisters sew. True to her Arctic roots, sealskin is featured predominantly in many of her designs. Martha is currently an instructor in the Inuit Studies Program at Ottawa-based Nunavut Sivuniksavut, an affiliate of Algonquin College, where she teaches Inuit history, Inuktitut, and sewing. She is a graduate of McGill University.
