These sessions are enjoyable for those who have taken an introductory encaustic class and want to further explore this alluring and tactile medium. I will share techniques including image transfer/collage, colour, glazing, relief, and drawing with charcoal, graphite and pastel.

Participants will also explore alternative media incorporated with encaustic including sand, plaster, metallic pigment and shellac.

*Encaustic painting is natural, safe and non-toxic. Ancient and intriguing, this method of painting originated in Greece, where it was used for the earliest easel and mural painting. A heady combination of colour, melting wax and heat, encaustic mixes dry and oil pigments in hot beeswax.

Workshop Location:
