Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists’ Association presents one more workshop from “do-it-yourself” series and this time we have invited artist Justin Tyler Tate, working internationally, who has been running a series of “Fake It Till You Make It” (FITYMI) workshops since 2011.

FITYMI is a workshop/working group for those curious individuals looking to broaden their experience and skill-set. Each session of FITYMI is on a different subject which could fall under areas of expertise such as construction, making, baking, electronics, mechanics, cooking, jewelry, physics, plants, and whatever else can be imagined. It is the purpose of the workshop to learn new things for the sake of learning and it is for this reason that participants will only discover the subject of each session upon arriving to the workshop. During each meeting there is a short talk about the subject and how to accomplish the objective of the FITYMI session followed by participants choosing how to proceed (experimenting with materials, accomplishing a project, discussion and/or playing) with what is available at some point during the workshop.

Justin Tyler Tate was born in Canada and grew up in the United States. Tate has a Bachelors degree in Fine Art from NSCAD University, a Doctorate in electronics and has an insatiable curiosity for new materials, techniques and ways of making. Tate teaches workshops on the methodology of available materials, tools and site specificity. He also travels abroad to execute performative, site-specific and electronic installations.
