Encaustics

This class is an introduction to Mixed Media and encaustic. Rachel Carroll has a Master’s degree from the COFA UNSW and has been a practising artist for over 20 years. Nature will be our inspiration for the day. This workshop begins with mixed media compositions and drawing referencing nature. Many materials will be combined to make the one work (ink, collage, frottage & charcoal + acrylic). The second half of the workshop will incorporate encaustic. Encaustic is a very versatile wax medium that enhances any surface and blends well with mixed media compositions on board to create amazingly layered and luminous work.
