Encaustic Collage and Assemblage
February 10-12, 2017 (9 am to 4 pm) — This workshop will begin to explore the possibilities of encaustic paints and medium to build paper-based works on panels. We will be making our own papers to use by altering various weight rice papers, found papers and other materials with inks and techniques borrowed from batik painting. What will result are layered works built of paper, but with very painterly qualities and imagery thru transfers. We will also introduce how to attach some 3D items to the surface of your works and do some simple casting. While experience with encaustic is not needed for this workshop, general art making experience will be helpful. All paint, medium, some papers, and equipment/brushes will be provided for use in the workshop. Visit website
