Encaustic & Paper Workshop Sun 17 Nov SOLD OUT

Sorry…. Its SOLD OUT

This is a One Day Workshop you will NOT WANT TO MISS…


We have the amazing Marguerite de Fondaumiere from Blackbird Studio in Sydney teaching Encaustic and Hand made paper techniques right here in our studio

Explore work that can be created by combining mark making, drawing, print, and other materials with a variety of papers, both Western and Japanese, with wax. We will experiment with layering imagery, dipping and saturating the paper. Lightweight Asian papers become translucent and luminous. Other techniques include applying colour, monotype and collaging. Encaustic can be incorporated with printmaking, painting, sculpture or used on its own. It is a versatile, durable and translucent medium that can be used to create amazing layers, textures and surfaces.
