Intro to Encaustics

Hands-on beginning workshop – a great introduction if you are new to encaustics

“Encaustics is so forgiving for beginners! It’s sooooo fun!! As a photographer, I love the way it allows me to play with my photo images in a more tactile, topographical way.”
— Micki K.

Margot Hartford’s encaustic workshops at The Image Flow are a wonderful dive into the extensive possibilities of the encaustic medium; at the core of all encaustic art is the wax itself, which can be treated with pigments for encaustic painting, used to layer in collage elements, and much, much more.

This hands-on, one-day beginning encaustics workshop is a great introduction if you have never worked with encaustic wax art or learned encaustic art techniques before.

The workshop will examine approaches to using photographs, magazine tears, tissue papers, and other objects that can be embedded into the wax. Even photographic elements can be combined with the medium to produce unique encaustic photography mixed media works.

We will address heating, fusing, and manipulating wax, as well as discuss colors, brushes, and where to find materials.

Participants will be supplied with two 1-inch thick 5 x 7” or 6 x 6” wood panels to work on during this beginning encaustics class and will take home at least two completed works of encaustic art.
