Expand Your Art With Encaustic! Join visual artists Candace Law and Melissa Rian on Saturday and Sunday, April 22–23 for a two-day encaustic collagraph workshop and learn more about another way of working with this ancient art form using hot wax.
The workshop will feature printmaking, using wax medium to build up layers of texture on an acrylic plate, then running it through a press to pull a collograph print. The agenda for the two days will include:
- Making textured plates using wax and various materials and tools
- Pulling prints with a single or multiple colors
- Chine-collé technique
- As always, individual work time.
The equipment, supplies, and many materials needed for the workshop are provided. You may bring any tools or materials to create texture for your plates, as well as any special papers you might like to experiment with in printing.
