The workshop will focus on black and white encaustic monotypes, created by using the Roland Hotbox. The emphasis will be on how to use Washi (Japanese papers), such as Gampi and Kozo, to enhance the qualities of the encaustic monotype.  The monocromatic color palette draws inspiration from Chinese calligraphy and ancient Chinese and Japanese ink paintings. Continuing the Asian theme, students will create horizontal and vertical scrolls.
