A complex web of connections are made through the layering of patterns, colors and marks. The transparent character of encaustic reveals a history of the work’s development and the glass like surface allows many layers to appear at once. This surface can be achieved with the final fused layer. Encaustic can also be very textural which can give the piece a very satisfying visceral experience.

During this workshop students work with a variety of tools, botanical materials, transparent as well as opaque colors and unique rubber stencils. There will be an opportunity to explore lines and dots with a stylus.
Demonstrations will be followed with time to experiment and improvise.
If participants have worked with encaustic before, please bring in some small pieces that you may want to continue to work on. Understanding the properties of encaustic is the first step to incorporating it into your
own work. Participants will emerge with a range of skills to deepen the direction of their work and the confidence to create using the new abilities learned in class.
