The Grimsby Public Art Gallery has invited me to teach an encaustic workshop next Tuesday night, April 5, from 6:30~9:30PM. If you live close by there are a few openings still available.
The fluidity of molten wax and colour combined with the immediacy and diversity of printmaking will be addressed in this evening workshop. Incorporating drawing, painting and image transfer, you will engage and be inspired to play with collage, monotype, resist and relief techniques. We will also address temperature, adhesion, layering, surfaces and how to make your own encaustic paint.
This workshop is open to a maximum of 6 participants, allowing for individual guidance and lots of hands-on exploration.To register, please contact me
My friend and I were talking books tonight and I mentioned Emily Carr. Most people know Carr as a great Canadian painter, but she was also an accomplished author, with quite a sense of humour to her writing. Our conversation brought to mind this image below, inspired by one of Carr's books, titled 'Klee Wyk' ('laughing one')
