In these Beginner Workshops you will be learning a variety of techniques including how to build layers, fuse, texture, work with grids, stencils, embed objects, incise, transfer, collage and much more along with a working knowledge on how to melt and mix wax, a bit about the history of wax painting, a working knowledge of supplies and how to create your own workspace! All supplies included. Most Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 to 4:00. Please see the schedule page and email for availability bonny@theencausticcenter.com.
