There is so much more to encaustic than beeswax. This workshop will introduce you to this fascinating medium and allow you to discover its incredible versatility.  The basics of priming appropriate surfaces and fusing with heat will be covered, of course, but you will also learn to use many other 'wax friendly' techniques which can enhance your paintings, such as collage, image transfer, and combining oil and wax.  Set-up and safety will also be covered. Come and find out what it is about this ancient art medium that is so alluring.
