Wax and Gelli - the perfect combo- Participants must have taken the Basic Encaustic Class or have encaustic experience. This 2-day workshop combines two extremely intuitive processes- gelatin printing and encaustic techniques. Learn how to make prints using “gelli plates" and matt acrylic paint. No printing press needed! The prints created will be used as the springboard for encaustic painting; using encaustic techniques as a way to enhance and expand the prints. The resulting art is fun and surprising. 

March 26 & 27 Registration opens 2/8/2022 7:00 AM MST

Basic Encaustic techniques (all levels)

This is a high energy, hands-on, two-day encaustic workshop. We will explore a variety of encaustic techniques, including making medium and paint, prepping substrates, fusing wax, layering translucent color, adding, and reducing texture, masking, stencils, mark making, image transfer techniques and more. No experience necessary, all materials provided, just bring your creativity, and go home with art!

Alternative Printmaking Techniques (all levels)

Printmaking is defined as transferring an image from a matrix onto another surface. In this 2-day workshop we will explore that transfer process in a very loose and experimental way using simple tools and techniques that yield surprising results. Think monotypes, collagraphs, gelli prints; making and using stamps and stencils, positive and negative shapes, printing with found objects, etc. Participants will build their personal vocabulary of shape, texture and color. We will print on a variety of papers, each print informing the next. All materials provided, come and be part of this creative experimentation.

April 9 &10 Registration opened now

Expand & Experiment with Encaustic (must have encaustic experience) This is a two-day, jam-packed workshop is perfect for taking your encaustic skills to the next level.

All materials provided, just bring your creativity. Let us see what we can create with encaustic wax!
