Encaustic Painting Weekend Workshop with Joanna Kidney at Outpost Studios

byu_studio3_vai12 and 13 November, 10am to 4pm

Encaustic painting (coming from the Greek word Enkaustikos which means to burn in) is an ancient, immediate and tactile painting process using molten pigmented beeswax. This 2 day workshop will cover the multiple techniques of encaustic painting, plus collage/mixed media and encaustic monotypes. An experimentational exploration of the qualities of encaustic painting will be encouraged (texture, transparency/opacity, incising and impressing, building up/breaking down layers). The workshop will also cover equipment and tools, paints/paint recipes, supports and health and safety. Suitable for beginners and those with previous experience of encaustic. Class size is limited to 6, so there will be plenty of one to one.

Course fee: €140, email joanna@joannakidney.com or tel 087 2377613 for booking and enquiries. A €50 non refundable deposit is required to reserve a space.
