Event Description

Learn the basics of encaustic painting and collaging with hot wax! Hot encaustic wax is an intoxicating medium that smell honey and falls somewhere between painting and sculpture. This affordable workshop includes 2 10x10x2” cradled canvases and unlimited encaustic medium. Through guided demonstrations, you’ll explore layer building technique using different fusing tools to create unique surfaces. You’ll learn collage, image transferring, painting, and transparent layering. At the end the workshop, you’ll have two completed pieces of art.
