Join Me for a Workshop on the Oregon Coast
I'm pleased to let you know about my next workshop--it's at one of my favorite places! What better place to play with buried treasure than the Oregon Coast?
Wabi-Sabi Buried Treasure
Mixed Media & 3-D Embellishments with Encaustic
Saturday, August 17 10-4
Held at Bloom Artscape in Yachats, Oregon
We'll use papers and layers of encaustic medium and paint to create thick and textured pieces with 3-D touches. We’ll be working on wood panels and transforming an old book.
Making this work is exciting--a kind of archaeological excavation in reverse! I'll show you how to create primal and mysterious work that invites the viewer to imagine a story woven into the piece with each layer and element.
You'll learn how to add layers of wax and specialty papers and how to incise into the work to show what has come before. As you add and scrape back you'll become intimate with your materials and express your deepest self.
