Build dimension in your work and layer using wax as a transparency. Explore image making through stencil, collage, transfer and drawing on wax. Discuss the history of encaustic as archival preservation and learn basic care of this amazing medium.

Kate Knox is a painter and printmaker who has been incorporating encaustics into her mixed media work for a decade. Her work is in many public and private collections and has been featured in Cafe Review, Ayris and Luna, Luna magazines. She graduated with high honors from the New Hampshire Institute of Art in 2015 with a BFA in painting and printmaking. While working as a studio assistant to encaustic painter and sculptor Kim Bernard for 5 years, Knox learned much from the hand of an expert.

What to bring:

Collage materials - printed paper, Japanese papers, wallpaper, post cards, organic materials, fabric, found objects (flatter, lighter items work best - trinkets, feathers, keys etc...)

Brushes - Inexpensive natural bristle, varying sizes. No nylon, it melts! Keep in mind, after these brushes have been used for encaustic, they will be only usable for encaustic going forward.
