Do you have some experience with encaustic, but need some help to achieve the things you want? Need help from a troubleshooter? Want to make a satin smooth surface? Want advice on how to make a metre long palette collage? These and other questions will be answered by Doctor Daniella, the encaustic queen.

The emphasis here will be on achieving what the student wants, so only those with some experience should apply.

Only six students in a studio set up for encaustic, so you will receive plenty of personal attention.

Daniella Woolf is coming!

Daniella Woolf is coming to Australia next month and will be doing two workshops in Sydney. She’ll also be teaching at TAFTA in Geelong, but her workshop there is fully booked.

Workshop One:
Improvise with Encaustic at Reverse Garbage.

Hut 9, (on the left after you drive in, just before Reverse Garbage.)
The Addison Road Community Centre
142 Addison Road
Marrickville NSW 2204
Dates: Friday 12th, Saturday 13th September, 10am to 4pm.

Cost: $270 plus some cash to spend at Reverse Garbage.

Our first exercise will be procuring all our “art supplies” at Reverse Garbage. We will then transform said supplies into encaustic art works. We will explore the versatility of encaustic medium, which can be polished, carved, scraped, layered, collaged, dipped, cast, modeled, sculpted, textured. We could be doing collage, sculpture, assemblage, working on or off a flat surface. Be prepared to improvise with your materials and wax! It is best if the student has some previous encaustic experience.

There is plenty of parking at the community centre. Please bring something to contribute to a communal lunch. There is a simple kitchen. Tea and Coffee will be provided.

Encaustic Beyond the Frame Day 2.

Today we constructed 3D forms using paper that had already been printed on.

We also worked into a plate that had previously been coated with texture paste which had dried. We then painted the board with encaustic paint and scraped back to reveal the texture underneath and the worked into the surface of the board using different methods.

Encaustic Beyond the Frame, Day 1.

This is the first time that Anthea and I have taught this workshop. We are very pleased the way it is going and will certainly present it again. Our group today was small but the students have responded very creatively.
