INTRODUCTION TO ENCAUSTIC

Sarah Rehmer

$335.00
Designed for students new to the encaustic medium or those wanting to expand their knowledge, this 2-day workshop provides a hands-on introduction to the materials, working methods, and safety fundamentals for working in encaustic. Students will leave the workshop with a solid technical foundation and the confidence to continue exploring encaustic beyond the workshop. Sarah approaches her teaching with alternating between demonstrations and working time so students can see and discuss a process, and then immediately give it a try. We will explore basic painting techniques, color mixing, fusing methods, and surface refinement. If you have current pieces made in another medium, please bring for a discussion on how to translate or enhance the work with encaustic paints. All paints and tools/brushes are supplied.
