One of the versatilities of working with encaustic is its use for sculpture. One of those uses is inherent to its ability to give structure to soft materials. It can also be used to add strength, and to seal and finish surfaces, among others uses that will be talked about in class. In this workshop, students will be using wire and plaster gauze to sculpt pieces. They will be also using papers and fibers dipped in wax to create sculptural pieces, by folding, twisting, sewing, and attaching pieces together to build a structure that can be mounted or installed as well.

The plaster pieces will be prepared on day one and left to dry. Day two will be spent finishing up their sculptures, and learning different ways to display them, as well as how to attach them to a panel or support. They will be painting their prep pieces; experiencing the different ways that encaustic can enhance its surfaces. Students will be encouraged to use mixed media elements, combined with other media to develop their concepts and push their limits and possibilities. We will wrap up the workshop with a discussion and critique. By developing an awareness of the sculptural possibilities of the Encaustic medium, this workshop is designed to increase the ability to create, see and respond to a 3-D object, despite your personal style. A materials list will be provided upon registration.
