This workshop is for students who are new to encaustic and for those who want to expand their skills, get another point of view or to explore more possibilities. Students will be oriented to all equipment, safety measures, materials and some history. Demonstrations and explanations of various techniques are offered in a step-by-step method with encouragement to improvise. These demos are offered at intervals with time to practice in between, throughout the course. Wherever you are in your experience working with encaustic, I will take you to the next level.
