Encaustic Basics Workshop for an introduction to the basics of working with encaustic. The workshop combines demonstration and independent work, giving you a chance to experiment with the materials and tools. It is intended for artists at every level who are curious about encaustic; no experience is needed or required. It's a fun way to spend part of a Saturday … creating encaustic art.

Most materials and equipment needed for the workshop are provided. You may bring found objects, fabric, clippings or other "stuff" to incorporate into your artwork. You will be working on small to medium-sized panels (up to 8" x 10") so you can complete at least one piece by the end of the session.
