Workshops for December

Encaustic basics FULL
Description: In this introductory class we begin with safety, the most important component in learning encaustic. We address ventilation, correct working temperatures, and the proper use of equipment. I will explain how to make your own of encaustic medium and paint, appropriate supports and how to make a traditional gesso ground. I will show you how to size a panel, the many different ways to apply paint, fusing options, how the paint looks at full strength versus glazing, and focus on how to achieve a smooth surface.
You will learn how to treat the edges of your panels, control your work through different fusing techniques, control your brush strokes and learn a variety of methods of drawing into and onto your work. Techniques include incising, filling, scraping, drawing and creating texture.
All materials are included.
Though I will provide with things you can bring if you wish to personalise your work.

Description: Wax is the perfect ground for inclusions and transferred imagery. I show you a variety of transfer techniques using carbon paper, carbon pencils, graphite, charcoal,, and toner based images. Learn how to collage paper and fibre into your work.
