with Ankon Mitra

October 2 & 9, 2022 

Time: 11:00 -1:00PM ET

Tuition: $130

Two Japanese crafts of folding and tie-n-dye come together in this workshop to create textiles which are elevated works of art with the textile inks colouring the pleats and folds to create an effect both technical and finessed. 3-4 patterns will be taken up in the workshop, as well as the backing textiles with card-stock paper to permanently hold the folded-pleated shapes, to make the textile pieces frame-worthy murals/sculptures.

Introduction to Mixed Media Encaustic Sculpture

with Kelly Sheppard Murray

October 13 & 20th, 2022 

Time: 4:00 – 6:00PM ET

Tuition: $125

This class will demonstrate ways to use wire, wire mesh and found wood pieces (lumber, basket reed, balsa or dry sticks) to make sculptural forms that are painted with encaustic to finish the surface by providing a unifying color and texture. We will discuss unique aspects of working with encaustic on three-dimensional forms including fusing multi-dimensional surfaces; coating and building up textural surfaces; using color to enhance dimension.


Kelly Sheppard Murray is a Raleigh, North Carolina artist, educator and designer.
Murray creates small sculptures to allow consistent daily actions to grow the body of work over time. The pieces encase, cover, stitch or layer found, industrial, cast-off or surplus materials that are coated in encaustic wax that suggest but not replicate forms in nature. The small pieces are often grouped in clusters of dozens of small colorful forms. She had recent solo or two-person exhibitions at Charlotte Russell Contemporary, Raleigh; Wilma Daniels Gallery, Wilmington; VAE’s The Lab, Raleigh and Durham Art Guild.
