Description

Reserve your seat in this workshop by enrolling here. If the event is full, you will be added to the waitlist.

About the Workshop:

Create a miniature weaving on a credit card loom! Learn the basics of warp, weft, and the tabby stitch. Once you learn these simple steps you may be amazed at how adaptable the process can be.

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.
