Lisa Marie Sipe encaustic workshopLearn the basics of working with encaustic in a hands-on exploration of this ancient wax art form. Encaustic is composed of beeswax, resin and pigment, applied hot, and fused to produce works that are translucent, sculptural and rich. After learning a brief history of encaustic, students will learn to make encaustic medium, color mixing, basic fusing techniques and layering.

The goal of this one-day workshop is to become comfortable with encaustic and finish 1-2 pieces of artwork. If you have always wanted to try encaustic this introduction is a great way to get started! All supplies are included.
