Intro to Wax Encaustics Workshop

This beginning encaustic photography workshop is a great introduction to the craft!

*Saturday April 22, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

This beginning encaustic photography workshop is a great introduction if you have never worked with wax and the art of encaustics before.

“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 photography 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 in layers with photographs, or combined with paper for a collage effect.

This hands-on, one-day encaustic basics workshop is a great introduction if you have never worked with encaustic wax or learned encaustic techniques before. The workshop will examine approaches to using mixed media, tissue papers, and other objects that can be embedded into the wax for an encaustic collage.

Even photographic elements can be combined with the medium to produce unique encaustic mixed media results. We will address heating, fusing, and manipulating wax, as well as discuss colors, brushes, and where to find materials.

Encaustic wax and all 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 5×7-inch or 6×6-inch wood panels to work on during this beginning encaustics class and will take home at least two completed works of encaustic art. Margot will have additional panels for sale at $12 apiece, should students desire more materials to work on as they perfect the encaustic technique.

An intermediate encaustics course is also scheduled for the following day, 11-3PM. Register for one, the other, or bundle both and save!


$155 for one 4 hour session.
