ENCAUSTIC – WAX PAINTING

Sat 1 Oct | 10.00am – 3.00pm | £25.00                                                         

Encaustic is the ancient art of painting using a beeswax medium with pigment in layers fused with heat to the layer beneath, to create a multi-layered solid lustrous surface.

During this engaging popular workshop with Encaustic Artist Niamh O’Connor, you will work with coloured wax on card manipulated by the use of specially supplied irons and adapted stylus tools. This easy introduction into the art of encaustic is suitable for people interested in card making or creating small-scale simply-achieved art pieces for scrapbooking or framing. You will leave the workshop with a range of cards and art works in different textures and colours. All materials and equipment are provided, however attendees should bring an apron or wear old clothes.
