Instructor:  Margot Hartford. Prerequisite:  None. This one-day encaustics workshop is a great introduction if you have never worked with wax and the art of encaustics before. The workshop will examine approaches to using colored wax like paint, as well as experimenting with papers and other objects that can be embedded into the wax. We will address heating, fusing, and manipulating wax, as well as discuss colors, brushes, and where to find supplies. All materials are provided although students are welcome to bring along their own collage materials. Participants will be working on wooden panels and will take home at least two completed works of encaustic art.
