Join us for a 4.5-hour workshop to dive into learning how to create using the luminous and unique medium of encaustic!  A medium that happily combines collage, photography, oils, watercolor and more!  We will complete several projects during the workshop to explore different layering techniques and best practices as you make your own work!  

We will cover the following:

  • Tools and safety
  • A brief history of Encaustics
  • how to set up an easy and inexpensive encaustic space

Basic skills: fusing and layering wax

Extra Techniques: collage, adding images and mixed media, incising the wax

Students will leave with:

  • 4 completed projects
  • Having confidence and knowledge in this ancient and luminous medium
  • Packet of written material on encaustics
  • Comprehensive Resource List

Ephemera List for Students to bring their own material (this will make your work personal) :

  • Any small doo-dahs you would like to try including in a piece (mis-matched earrings, ribbon, string, stamps)
  • Papers: old dictionary pages, children’s books, sheet music, maps, technical diagrams, maps etc – Not cardstock or glossy magazine pages.
  • Fabric, netting, lace, decorative paper napkins, etc.
  • Inkjet copies of images or photos on regular copy paper (we’ll be working in a 4” x 4” to 8” x 8” format, so you can plan your images accordingly)
