Cut-Glue-Wax-Embellish. That’s it, that’s encaustic collage. Come to this fantastic Playshop with me and enjoy a lovely day of creative process and go home with a stack of your creative products. No experience is needed just a willingness to experiment and play. I’ll have my stash of art papers, embellishments, wax and tools. To start the day, I’ll demonstrate the techniques in making a collage with important gluing tips and then applying the encaustic wax encasement. You’ll then texturize and embellish the surface. Finally, you will be set loose to create small wax-encased collages on wood panels, all the while offering guidance. By the end of the day you’ll carry home 3-4 small art pieces to share and enjoy.

What Students bring:
You don’t need to bring anything with you but if you have a stash of art papers, old letters, old photos, sewing pattern paper, book pages, stamps, amazing glitter or other interesting ephemera…. feel free to bring it along.
