  • April 12 – encaustic with paper

Immerse yourself in the fragrance of beeswax and vivid color during this ½ day mini workshop that will focus on use of paper.

Maggie will lead you through an afternoon of interesting demos with a variety of papers. You will have an opportunity to practice the techniques and to add samples to your sketchbook. While working with wax can often result in thick richly textured surfaces, working on paper can also result in a light watercolor type effect. This adds an interesting dimension to encaustic work as pieces can be framed just like other paper work, or can be added to other work already in progress.

Bring all your own pigments, waxes and interesting natural material papers. We will supply some paper samples and the equipment.

Thursday afternoon April 12, 1 – 3:30 pm

$37.50 + HST
