The Fundamentals of Encaustic Painting is best suited to those new to the medium or with a small amount of experience. It will cover: the multiple additive and subtractive techniques of encaustic painting, collage/embedding, photographic transfers; supports; materials, equipment, tools and health and safety. An experimental exploration of the paint’s qualities will be encouraged- texture, subtraction (incising and impressing), building up/breaking down layers and translucency/opacity. There will be plenty of painting time balanced with demonstrations.
Class sizes are small with a strong focus on individual support. This workshop is supported by R&F Handmade Paint products. All materials are included in the cost.
