WORKSHOP SIZE | limited to 4

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION | With social distancing and sheltering in place in force across the country it has made holding and participating in workshops basically impossible.  So, we have decided to, with the help of Zoom, bring a workshop to you.

We are creating a four hour online encaustic workshop with a half hour followup a week later.  The way it will work is we will ship you a box full of all the equipment, supplies and tools you will need to participate along with us. This includes 4 boards with your images prepped and ready for encaustic along with one image/board for you to practice gluing.  The cost of the class will include shipping to you and the return to us. You will also have the option of buying some or all of what we send.

This initial workshop will be open to two participants. We intend to open it up to more folks later as we get a better idea of the mechanics of it.

The workshop will cover:

  • History of encaustic and view examples of work
  • Preparing digital images for printing
  • Preparation of boards
  • Application of encaustic
  • Demonstration of hand coloring on wax
  • Incising in the wax with various tools
  • Image transfer onto the wax with inkjet copies
  • Layering of images with tissue paper
  • Demonstration of application of cold wax
  • Various techniques to add texture to wax
  • Finishing the sides of the boards and proper hanging techniques
  • Care of encaustic art
