This workshop will give you the opportunity discover and learn about Encaustics. You will have a better understanding about its’ process and how to set up a studio of your own if you wish to continue your own exploration into Encaustics.

Encaustic is a wax-based painting medium that originated with ancient Greeks 3,000 years ago. The primary ingredients of encaustic paint are beeswax and a tree gum called damar resin. This combination is referred to as Encaustic Medium and it forms base of encaustic paint.  Pigments are added to create the color wax -based paints.

This is a one-day workshop will allow you to play and experiment with Encaustic.  The $50 supply fee covers all your supplies needed. You will have several 6” square birch wood substrates to work on in the morning as each instruction leads to hands on experimentation. In the afternoon a 10” square cradled board is provided to create your own Encaustic Masterpiece.  All your encaustic medium and pigmented colors are provided, you will have access to various mixed mediums that may be used to build your panels. All the tools you will find necessary for creating your work will be on hand for you to use.
