Lines lead the eye and communicate information through variation in width, direction, density, length and character. They are as integral to any composition as the composition itself. Despite the incredible versatility of the encaustic medium, there is a limit to the techniques available in which to incorporate line. Open to those with a beginning to advanced level of encaustic experience, this workshop will explore line and linear language far beyond the usual methods and materials to include the use of tjanting tools, drawing with horse and human hair, branding with heated metal and wood burning tools, as well as creating your own grids, laces and lace-like forms using free motion sewing machine embroidery on water soluble stabilizer. The workshop begins with a comprehensive exercise involving composition generation, which will result in several compositions from which to explore these new techniques. Considerations of the use of the grid as a conceptual as well as compositional tool will also be discussed. Most materials and a sewing machine will be included for class use.
