Encaustic Collage - June 27-28, Saturday 10-5 & Sunday 10-4 at Yourist Studio Gallery
Encaustic’s ancient Egyptian roots date back 2000 years. It is a beautiful, luminous material made from bees wax and pigment. By applying layers of wax one is able to achieve various textures and relief. It is also the collage medium par excellence. Participants will learn how to use encaustic as an element in mixed media assemblage. This two-day workshop will explore the use of encaustic with collage materials in two and three dimensions. We will use found objects, old prints/photographs or drawings, while at the same time utilizing the ancient practice of encaustic painting. Participants should bring materials they are interested in incorporating into mixed media assemblage or collage pieces. This includes but is not limited to old photos, magazines, tools, small objects, natural materials like seeds, dried leaves, pebbles, etc.
This workshop is appropriate for all skill levels - no experience in encaustic needed.
