Encausticized paper is very malleable, making it the perfect vehicle for sculpting geometric and organic forms. In this two-day workshop, you will collage or transfer imagery onto paper using encaustic medium. These papers will be used to create geometric vessels using provided patterns. From this structure, individual box and basket shapes can be made, as well as sewn figurative shapes and abstract sculptures. The basics of working with encaustic will be covered along with other techniques such as incising, layering, and burning. Individual explorations of the encaustic medium and its sculptural aspects will be encouraged.
