Exploring Encaustic: Stretching the Boundaries of Hot Wax

Nov 16 - 21 Begins in 2 weeks
with Cari Hernandez

This workshop is a creative journey that can awaken the senses as you explore the ancient medium of encaustic. Encaustic is a technique of painting with molten beeswax that dates back more than 4,000 years. This lush medium delights the senses with its gentle fragrance and enticing surfaces. Together we will tap into the creative play that moves us forward, while working with the alchemy and physicality that are inherent in the hot wax medium.
