Encaustic 4 Workshop

  • Sun Jun 29, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

"The Hive" studio

In this course you will explore various surfaces: drywall compound on wood, plexi-glass, rusted metal, colour theory, advanced glazing methods, working with 3-D collage items, using oil sticks, water-soluble wax-crayons and carving straight lines.

Encaustic 2,3,4 workshops are intended for those who have taken encaustic workshops with Andrea, or someone else in the past as well as those who have been experimenting with encaustic on their own. It is important that the student have experience with all three fusing tools, the iron the heat gun and the blow torch. The focus of each builds on the one before, with new techniques being added, increasing in complexity. It is fine to take encaustic 2, 3 and 4 out of sequence!  

Cost: $195 for one or $350 for two.

Call: 519-323-3437. See Andrea's website for more info on this and other workshops.
