Intro to Encaustics

A great hands-on workshop introducing you to wax and the art of encaustics

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 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.

Encaustic wax and some other encaustic supplies will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring their own additional materials to incorporate into their artwork.

Participants will be supplied with two 1-inch thick 5×7” wood panels to work on and will take home at least two completed works of encaustic art. Margot will have additional panels for sale at $15 a piece, should students desire more materials to work on as they perfect the encaustic technique.

Margot also offers Encaustics: Beyond the Basics. Sign up for both Intro & Beyond the Basics with our Encaustics Bundle and receive a $25 discount!
