Photo Encaustic Play Day
Saturday, June 11, 2016: 10am–4pm
This workshop is for beginners who are interested in experimenting with encaustic waxes and pigments over photographs or other forms of two-dimensional artwork.
Photographer Jessica Somers will demonstrate her method of applying encaustics to photographs by way of play and happenstance. The results from work created in this workshop will be serendipitous and without much regard for precision or specific encaustic technique. The hope is to free the maker from any preconceived notions of what the end result should be in order to create work from the gut rather than from the brain.
Participants are asked to bring a selection of images of approximately 8×10 or smaller. These should ideally be printed on a cotton rag paper. You may opt for us to print them in advance for you. Please consult this page for print pricing.
