Finding the Soul of Forgotten Materials

With Geoffrey Gorman

March 24th & 25th and April 1st
3:00 – 5:00 pm ET

 Tuition: $210

  • Live Three part Workshop Access with Q&A
  • 30 Days Access to Workshop Recording

Description:

Using unusual techniques developed by Geoffrey to overcome construction challenges, each student will complete a variety of forms, something they want to create. 

Students will be asked to bring some of their own favorite cast-off materials. This class is perfect for beginners seeking an introduction to creating curious objects as well as intermediate and advanced students wishing to reach the next level and break out of their comfort zone. Students need to be familiar with using hand and power tools such as drills, band saws, and sanders. We will look at selecting and designing pedestals and stands for artwork. We will also learn how to make patinated and painted tin to add age and color to various forms.

Geoffrey Gorman is breathing life into what might be considered to be the detritus of our culture. He constructs both real and fanciful animals using sticks, rusted screws, washers, bicycle tires, old
tools, baling wire, discarded canvas, and other things that are housed in cluttered garages or the backs of closets suffering from neglect. An intense physical process goes into making each work as Gorman builds from a series of elements layer upon layer. He explores the shared identity between animals and humans. Gorman shows his work at Giacobbe Fritz Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico along with other galleries around the country. Gorman’s work is in numerous public and private collections around the United States.

Origami-Shibori

with Ankon Mitra

Tuition: $130

Registration Closed

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

Tuition: $125

Registration Closed

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.

Details:

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.
