Description


Wabi Sabi Encaustic Play

Imperfection is the basic principle of Wabi-Sabi the Japanese philosophy of accepting your imperfections and making the most of life. You will play explore and dive deep into the world of discovery using encaustic wax as your medium. Encaustic is a perfect vehicle for artists wishing to explore this aesthetic. You will learn a liberating process of texturing, layering, building up and scraping back to create a fascinating "history of surface." Each piece will be the result of elements converging in a one-time-only way, resulting in fiercely original abstract encaustic painting, honoring your own process of self discovery. Imperfection is welcome. Play is promised and freedom and fun are guaranteed. Take home the principles learned and apply them to your art and your everyday life!

You will go home with a completed 12x12 painting

All supplies included.

Coffee, tea and light snacks provided


Beginners welcome

Cost $160



  • What Is Encaustic?

  • Encaustic is a Greek word meaning “to heat or burn in” Heat is used throughout the process, from melting the natural beeswax and dammar resin (crystallized tree sap). The medium can be used alone for its transparency or adhesive qualities or used pigmented. Pigments may be added to the medium. The medium is melted and applied with a brush or any tool the artist wishes to create from. Each layer is then reheated to fuse it to the previous layer
