The Hive: Encaustic Art Cards with Kim Kool

  • Fri Mar 22, 1 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

The Hive Encaustic Studio, Alton Mill Arts Centre

This a great workshop for anyone looking for a taste of this wonderful medium, or for anyone who wants to explore the fun of working in miniature! This 2.5 hour workshop covers basic safety and general information.  Participants will learn how to layer and fuse the wax, gouging and mark making techniques, how to embed materials, basic photo transfers, and use of the hot stylus tool.  Each participant will leave with 4-6 of their own original encaustic 'mini' pieces, mounted on 5x7 backing.  We are working on 100% recycled fibre mat board and using products that are eco-friendly.  All supplies and equipment included.  No previous experience required.  
Cost per person is $70.
