Linda Lenart McNulty-Luminous Encaustics
6:00 - 10:00
Thurs Eve

[back to quicklinks]
$ 125  

The warm encaustic griddle is our canvas for the creation of these transparent encaustic prayer flags. In this workshop we will be dipping and layering all sorts of delicious handmade papers and fiber into warm, aromatic encaustic wax. Then we will come off the griddle to shroud our work with smokey pigments and paint sticks, metallic scribbles and chalky pastels.
Each of these gorgeous little creations is like a prayer right out of our hands. The warm wax holds the intentions of our creative selves, allowing ideas and creativity to flow to us all year when we hang them in our homes. Beauty and discovery abound for us all in this warm & waxy workshop with Luminous Encaustics Studio on the Road.

Kit fee of $25 paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:
encaustic medium, R&F pigment sticks, oil paint, encaustic brushes, various forms of ephemera, use of shared griddles, skillets, and torches, and a variety of encaustic tools.

Students need to bring:
1. A few sheets of paper towel for clean up
2. A pair or two of Nitrile gloves
3. Wax paper for taking work home
4. Xacto Knife

Any personal ephemera including handmade paper, rice paper, origami paper, ribbons, metallic thread, botanicals, feathers, tea bags, labels, and xeroxed images
