Encaustic—the use of heated beeswax mixed with pigments—opens up a vast new territory for exploration when combined with textiles.

In this mixed-media encaustic workshop students will gain a thorough knowledge of the encaustic technique. Participants will learn the basic materials and formulas used in encaustic, proper safety procedures, and the preparation of appropriate supports and grounds.

Techniques will be taught sequentially and build upon one another. Demonstrations include: image transfers, metallic leafing, collage, line, edge, and three-dimensional work. This workshop is an exciting opportunity to expand your visual vocabulary with wax.

Encaustic has texture and translucency beyond your wildest dreams! It is an amazingly versatile art medium and is truly the glue that will allow you to use all the materials you’ve been collecting for years.

All skill levels are welcome.

Daniella arrives from California where she is a principal of Wax Works West, a school for the encaustic arts.
