Winter Workshops scheduled at Pocosin Arts Center

While winter can be a slow season for many, the Pocosin Arts Center has announced a number of events scheduled for coming months.

From Jan. 19 to 20, 2019, the Pocosin Waterfowl Weekend commemorates a quarter century of the arts in Tyrrell County. This 25th anniversary fundraiser for Pocosin Arts includes one night’s accommodations at our Riverside Lodge, round-trip travel to Pungo Lake and D-Canal to see the once-in-a-lifetime magnificent Atlantic Flyway migration. Event includes all meals, travel and talks by UNC’s Tom Earnhardt and author Georgann Eubanks. More information is available at www.pocosinarts.org/pocosin-arts-turns-25.

From Jan. 22 to 25, 2019 the Robert Ebendorf will host a workshop entitled, “Working in the box with Bob.” In this workshop, the use of unusual materials will open up unique possibilities and unconventional methods to create. Students will explore both inside and out of a cigar box to assemble their creative story, be it comical, political, or fantasy. Learning and using methods to connect, such as riveting, wiring, or collage, each participant will create work designed to display on the wall.

From Feb. 21 to 24, 2019 the school will host its Cabin Fever Reliever event, featuring four workshops from talented artists. Seminars include head and surface sculpture with Tom Bartel, collage with decals and enamel with Kathleen Browne, mixed-media with Bird Ross and Japanese Lamp-making with Anthony Ulinsky
