The Image Flow invites you to their Introduction to Encaustics Workshop! This hands-on beginning encaustics workshop is a great introduction if you have never worked with wax and the art of encaustics before. Margot Hartford’s encaustic workshops at The Image Flow are a wonderful dive into the extensive possibilities of the encaustic medium; at the core of all encaustic art is the wax itself, which can be treated with pigments for encaustic painting, used to layer in collage elements, and much, much more.
This hands-on, one-day beginning encaustics workshop is a great introduction if you have never worked with encaustic wax art or learned encaustic art techniques before. The workshop will examine approaches to using photographs, magazine tears, tissue papers, and other objects that can be embedded into the wax. Even photographic elements can be combined with the medium to produce unique encaustic photography mixed media works. We will address heating, fusing, and manipulating wax, as well as discuss colors, brushes, and where to find materials.
Required materials: bring your own photographs, prints, papers, and other collage materials to experiment (optional)
Registration: $135 (course tuition includes: two, one-inch-thick 5 x 7” or 6 x 6” wood panels included, additional panels for sale at $10 each, all other materials included)
Registration is available online. Maximum 12 students. Participants 16 and older welcome.
