A three-day workshop that uses very little equipment with big results. Students will work mostly on paper and fabric and some wood panels. The primary tool we will use is a hot stylus pen with six tips designed specifically for encaustic. Participants will explore the following techniques: collage, wax resist, mark-making, transfers, and stencils. Learn how to work with a minimum of supplies: go small and have it all! You will complete a book of all your experiments. Daniella joins us from Santa Cruz, USA.
