THIS IS A TWO DAY WORKSHOP: October 11 & 12, 2023
"Mixed Media Encaustic: Line"
Lines lead the eye and communicate information through variation in width, direction, density, length and character. They are as integral to any composition as the composition itself. Despite the incredible versatility of the encaustic medium, there are limits to the techniques available in which to incorporate line. Open to those with a beginning to advanced level of encaustic experience, this workshop explores line and linear language far beyond the usual methods and materials to include the use of tjanting tools, drawing with horse and human hair, branding with heated metal and wood burning tools, as well as creating your own grid-based patterns, laces and lacelike forms using free motion sewing machine embroidery and water-soluble stabilizers. There are no limits to how these embroidered forms can be used with encaustic as well as other art applications. Use of the grid in combination with collage and abstract painting techniques is also explored.
Note: The instructor will notify students of any materials needed (if any) prior to the workshop.
