Everyone had a great day today. It will be interesting to see how the students work progresses. Here are some images from today’s work.
Linda is an artist from Newcastle who has done two encaustic workshops with us.
Here she has used encaustic on laser cut wooden forms. Interesting work!

I notice there are quite a few food Warmers for sale on ebay at the moment, for around $60 each. the ones I use are the Maxim, but I’m sure others would be just as good.
Two new workshops coming up in July.
1. Encaustics Basics. This general introduction which will give you the tools to make successful images using encaustic. Its suitable for beginners, as well as more experienced people. It’s a two day workshop on the 17th and 18th July. Especially designed for printmakers, it concentrates on encaustics and paper.
2. Encaustics Beyond the Frame. This is a more advanced course which requires a general working knowledge of fusing and working with wax. We will explore ways in which we can use encaustic to make three dimensional work, and to create real and implied texture.
