Encaustics Mini-Workshop with Michelle Hamilton

  • This event has passed.

April 20, 2024 @ 3:00 am - 7:00 pm


This will be a small group limited to 6 people so that we can really spread out and have lots of room!

Join local artist Michelle Hamilton for a fun & colorful afternoon of learning the process of painting and layering with pigmented beeswax, and applying pan pastels and oil pigment sticks to add vibrant color & carving tools for detail.

You will discover various ways to build and apply the wax pigment as well as tools & techniques for creating patterns, textures and shapes by carving into the wax to create lines and details. Michelle will also bring some of her own encaustic creations to fuel your ideas & imagination while you create and play.

You will have practice backgrounds first to play and experiment with layering both clear and colored wax. You will then create a piece unique to you on your choice of two 8×8 wood panels.

All materials will be included and there will be a small break for snack and a glass of wine or sparkling water.
