Encaustic painting is an ancient, immediate and tactile painting process using molten pigmented beeswax. This workshop will cover the multiple techniques of encaustic painting, plus collage/mixed media and encaustic monotypes. An experimental exploration of the qualities of encaustic painting will be encouraged (texture, translucency/opacity, incising and impressing, building up/breaking down layers). It will also cover equipment and tools, paints/paint recipes, supports and health and safety. Suitable for beginners and those with previous experience of encaustic as class size is small to allow for plenty of one to one. All materials are included in the cost. A 50% deposit is required with booking.
