Product Description

Introduction to Encaustics is a Beginners Art Workshop where you will learn how to paint with encaustic wax and experiment with encaustic techniques and tools.

Dating back to the Fayum portraitures of Egypt, encaustics is a beautiful unpredictable medium that is both forgiving and surprisingly exquisite.

In this 1 day immersive workshop, we will work with the wax medium in a variety of ways - from a painterly fashion to one that embraces the encaustics organic nature creating texture and unpredictable movement.

You will learn how to make your own encaustic wax medium, experiment with different techniques and tools, and create up to 5 small encaustic artworks to take home!
