Photography with Encaustics Workshop

Saturday, August 5, 2017 • 9am-3pm

Registration/Materials Fee: $40
Class Size: 6

Encaustic, bees wax mixed with damar resin and pigments, is one of the oldest art forms dating back to ancient Greeks and Egyptians. This hands-on workshop offered participants the opportunity to use encaustic medium in combination with photographs to add dimension and texture to their work. Participants learned how to prepare wood panels, apply encaustics and how to incorporate their images into the work. 

In addition to encaustic materials, two wood panels per person and assorted papers were included in the workshop.
