NC State University’s annual Art 2 Wear show is just around the corner! Come to CAM Raleigh to create your own piece of art to wear to the Art 2 Wear show at NC State on April 25! Shelley Smith will be teaching participants how to use non-traditional embroidery techniques and materials to create unique accessories. This workshop is wonderful for anyone interested in fibers design, fashion design, or who just wants to make something fabulous to wear.

Shelley Smith is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Raleigh, North Carolina. Smith primarily uses textiles as her medium but often incorporates fiber with other sculptural elements. She combines traditional and contemporary techniques to create work that speaks to the nature of private versus public identity, as well as humans’ relationship to the wild. Smith received a Bachelor of Art + Design with a concentration in Fibers and Suface Design from North Carolina State University College of Design and has taught students at CAM Raleigh Summer Studios, NCSU Design Camp, and the after-school art program New Sense Studios, of which she is a co-founder.
