There are endless options for unique mark-making, layering and patterning when combining imagesurface design techniques on fabric with wax.

In this 2-day workshop, we will explore contemporary and traditional techniques such as silk painting, sunprinting, batik, tie-dye, and discharge on silk. Students will also experiment with traditional surface design tools and learn how they can be adapted and used directly with the encaustic process.

Demonstrations will be given to illustrate how the fabrics can be layered into an encaustic painting. Students will be creating many fabrics and have time to experiment with incorporating them into encaustic painting. Most materials supplied.

Where: Patris Art Studio

Fee: $295 + $25 materials.
