Encaustic Wax Painting Workshop

Encaustics is an ancient art form that involves fusing together layers of oil tinted beeswax with various heating techniques, such as heat guns, hot irons, and blowtorches.  As the layers are built up, objects can be embedded in the wax and gouging techniques are incorporated to create shapes and designs.  Colours are used simultaneously to add depth and beauty to the work.  Encaustics is a unique medium which allows participants to explore their creativity while effectively engaging the senses.
