The Hive: Sculptural Encaustic Seed Pods

  • Sat Apr 06, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

The Hive Encaustic Studio, Alton Mill Arts Centre

This course is an invitation to release doubt and fear to recreate natural beauty organically using humble materials with an open heart. Learn simple hand sewing techniques, basic wire armature techniques, and how to apply encaustic wax to fibre to construct a
 seed pod. Opening your heart, what is it that you would like to rebirth?  
What object is being called to be placed at the heart of your sacred seed pod for rebirth? Exploring the possibilities of rebirthing a stone, a feather, a poem, a piece of bark, or perhaps even a dream into your creation.
All supplies included, but please feel free to bring an item of significance to place in the centre of your pod.
All skill levels welcome.
