Event description

Description

Encaustic is an ancient 3000 year old technique of painting in molten wax. In modern times, it has seen a resurgence due to the ease of heating up the wax...it has an etheral, dreamlike quality due to the translucency of the wax. However, many students of mine have asked how they can do this at home and realize it takes a lot of commitment to invest in the equipment, ventilation and special tools to paint with hot wax.

A new wax paint has been introduced that replicates many of the qualities of tranditional encaustic but without the set up of traditional encaustic. Ceracolors are water soluble and non toxic, made with ingredients that are found in food and cosmetics. There is also no need for ventilation, special tools or brushes, making it ideal to be able to paint at home. Our workshop will delve into the many techniques and approaches for water based wax paint. We will explore using wax paint as oil, watercolor, encaustic and collage/photo transfer. This special 6 hour workshop will be taught by Heather Gentleman, who is an accomplished visual artist currently completing her Masters of Fine Art at the prestigious Chelsea College of the Arts, London, UK. She is a gifted teacher with over 20 years of teaching experience.

The workshop is designed to suit various experience levels. Minimum age 12 years with an adult. Teens with a love of art are welcome to attend.
