Have you noticed the abundance of cardboard packaging materials in use today? Have you ever wondered how you might use these materials in your artwork? In this 2-day workshop we’ll use cardboard to build 3-D objects and raised 2-D surfaces. Boxes, tubes, cones and cast-to-fit inserts will be used to build forms suitable for use with encaustic. Participants will have plenty of hands on time to build multiple forms. Textiles, encaustic and pigment sticks may be used to finish the surfaces of the artworks. Options for built in hanging systems for off panel work will be discussed. A slide presentation of work made from cardboard will be available for inspiration. All materials will be provided! Please feel free to bring any cardboard objects you’d like to work with.

*PLEASE NOTE: Additional materials list/fees may apply
