Encaustic Art!

About

This ancient medium of applying melted coloured wax and then fusing it to the painting surface with a heat source such as an iron holds great fascination and a magical synergy occurs. The workshop will be an introduction to this fascinating art form with experience artist Sue Wharton. All materials provided.
