Fabric and Encaustic: Exploring Mark-Making, Pattern and Repetition
February 19, 2022
In person workshop
Feb 19-21, 2022
There are endless options for unique mark-making, layering and patterning when combining surface design techniques on fabric with wax. We will explore contemporary and traditional techniques such as silk painting, batik, and discharge on silk. Students will also experiment with traditional surface design tools and learn how they can be adapted and used directly with the encaustic process.
Demonstrations and discussions will illustrate how the fabrics can be used in an encaustic painting and how the fabrics and wax can interact.
Students will be making lots of their own unique fabrics and collaging them into encaustic paintings.
This class is designed for students that have had some experience with encaustic. Supply list will be sent upon registration.
