Enrollment

Please login to enroll in this event.


Description

What is DukeCreate community day?

At least once a month, the Arts Annex offers DukeCreate workshops that are *free* and open to the community! Advance registration is not required for community day workshops. Note that no children under the age of 12 are permitted at these events. All minors 12-17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

About the workshop:

Come make your very own beautiful art print to hang in your dorm room or apartment! In this workshop students will learn the basics of lino-cut printmaking. Students will be provided with a small piece of soft linoleum and a carving tool to create their design. Once carved each student will have the opportunity to make a series of prints to take home in various colors. *Note: due to time it will be helpful if students can come prepared with some simple design ideas.


About the instructor:

Anna Wallace is a current resident and native of Durham, North Carolina. She holds a BFA in Ceramics from the Cleveland Institute of Art, and an MFA in Studio Art from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Teaching has become an integral part of Anna’s artistic practice. She teaches at UNCG, High Point University, and is the Lead Visual Arts Instructor at the North Carolina Governor’s School West.

Much of Anna's work infiltrates, as if the rugs, chairs, and vessels sprouted legs and marched out of the home and into the white box of the gallery. The colors, pattern density, and visual stimulation demand we pay attention. Her practice spans sculpture, installation, and performance. The way Anna handles each process is not dissimilar to the management of a home, bouncing from one thing to the next. Her work demonstrates an infatuation with female labor and the practices of women’s work.

In addition to Anna’s studio art practice, she designs and creates several collections of sustainably produced products. The pottery collection is made to seamlessly integrate into any existing kitchen, yet has a unique whimsical quality. The garment collection embraces slow fashion. Each item is sewn entirely from locally sourced vintage and remnant textiles - down to the thread.
