  • Maiwa East 1310 Odlum Drive Vancouver, BC, V5L 3M3 Canada (map)

With Daniella Woolf

$395 [Includes $95 lab fee] Class limit 14. Oct 30-Nov 1 (Mon-Wed) 10am-4pm.

This three-day workshop uses very little equipment with big results. Students will work mostly on paper and fabric and some wood panels. The primary tool we will use is a hot stylus pen with six tips designed specifically for encaustic. Participants will explore the following techniques: collage, wax resist, mark-making, transfers, and stencils. Learn how to work with a minimum of supplies: go small and have it all! You will complete a book of all your experiments.

Daniella joins us from Santa Cruz, USA.
