2019 Encaustic Art Holiday Cards Workshop
November 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$70
Come and paint with beeswax and fire! This a great workshop for anyone looking to experience the joy of encaustic painting. Encaustics involves using heat to fuse together layers of luminous, natural beeswax. As the layers are built up, objects can be embedded in the wax and layers can be scraped away, revealing texture and imagery. Colours are used simultaneously to add depth and beauty to the work.
This 3 hour workshop covers basic safety and general information. Participants will learn how to layer and fuse the wax, gouging and mark making techniques, how to embed materials, basic photo transfers, and use of the hot stylus tool. Each participant will leave with 4-6 of their own original encaustic ‘mini’ pieces, mounted on 5×7 backing. We will be working on 100% recycled fibre mat board and using products that are eco-friendly. All supplies and equipment included. No previous experience required.
Instructor – Kim Kool, Edge of Grey Encaustics and The Hive Encaustic Studio
