I find that as autumn settles on the world-the air changes, the leaves drop, and the days shorten-that I too come in. Because of realizing and then paying attention to this rhythm, I have been listening and creating in new ways.
My gardens and yards, house needs and compound growth, take up the lion’s share of my energy and hours when spring finally turns on. This carries through the summer with shortened bursts of studio time.
But when this autumn pulling-in begins, I am keen to respond wholeheartedly. My subconscious has danced with new ideas while tilling the soil of the raised beds. My hands have begun to itch to let what has lied latent in my creative heart burst forth. My soul and my fingertips begin to forage in the studio, reorganize bits and collections, regather connection with the creative expression I call my own.
Some of my most soulful creative work evolves from this depth rhythm. From this noticing and then paying attention, to the natural flow of creative energy.
This year, I want to begin in this autumn-space with you. Where WinterWax has in the past held the space for beginning, this shift to autumn is the truest place of beginning for me-of creative beginning.
With this, I invite you: To gather for one, three or four days-you decide your parameters. Just eight of us total, settling in, learning deep, exploring wide.
The intentions are to:
I don’t expect it to be good; I know it will be great. For those of you unaware, I have been on sabbatical since January. In returning now, in this manner, with the intentions in my heart, I give you my best. I hope you will come along and receive it~

Come and learn about the ancient art of Encaustic – a medium made of beeswax and resin, colored in various ways. This will be a fun class filled with lots of wonderfully waxy techniques. You’ll learn about the terms and tools of the trade, health and safety issues, and the endless ways you can use the medium to express your creativity. The majority of class time will be spent experimenting with the paints, tools and techniques, and you’ll take home several finished works, ready to be exhibited and enjoyed in your home or given as gifts. No previous art experience is required – only a sense of play and desire to learn. Bring your lunch and join us! Children age 10 and older are welcome to register if attending with a registered adult.
All materials are included!
Cost: $135 + $35 supply fee
WAX & WORDS: An exploration of asemic writing, words, mark making and images enhanced with beeswax encaustic layers and gold foil - with nine videos
We will explore mark-making with all kinds of tools, including sticks, stamps, and sprayed walnut ink over stencils. All of the simple materials are "wax-friendly" and chosen especially for their absorbancy and acceptance of wax. Areas of the artwork will be veiled,, concealed and revealed, then covered with thin layers of beeswax to add translucency to the mystery of the marks. The resulting work, elegant and timeless, can be matted, framed, or presented in wonderful two- and three-dimensional ways.
With nine hands-on videos and 80 pages of instruction and photographs, this is an eBook you will go to often for mixed-media and collage inspiration! Interactive PDF, $18, published September 2018
Praise for Wax& Words:
"I love all of Lyn's e-books and this one is particularly wonderful. I like having both Lyn's instructional videos (feels like I am in a private class) as well as the written materials. Her. Ideas are easy to understand, she gives several suggestions on things and provides a materials list. Even though I am familiar with both collage making and encaustic wax, I still learned new ideas. Every time I go through the e-book I get inspired to try something new. Lyn is creatively inspirational. Thanks Lyn."
