Encaustic Collage
For beginners and intermediate students. Learn how to use
hot wax to both adhere images and objects, and build layers
in order to create a unique collage piece using a variety of
paper, fiber and found objects. We will address safety issues,
and use irons and torches in order to fuse each layer of your
collage piece. Ideally, each student will have a completed and
archival piece at the end of the class. A $35 materials fee is due
to instructor at each workshop. Please check DAC website for
additional supply list.
