Encaustic Master Class


  • Durham Arts Council 120 Morris Street Durham, NC, 27701 United States (map)

Gain in-depth experience and knowledge of painting, collaging, and sculpting with hot wax in this master course! This workshop will take place Sat-Fri (7 6-hour days), but you can choose to attend for 2 days (Sat-Sun), three days (Sat-Mon), or seven days (Sat-Friday). This affordable course will cover advanced encaustic techniques such as shellac burns, painting on metal and plexiglass, incorporating oil paint, pours, and creating highly dimensional pieces. Demonstrations will be held at the beginning of each workshop day at 10:45am. The first three days will have 2-hour demonstration periods starting at 10:45, and the following 4 days will have shorter demonstration periods to maximize creation time. You’ll be able to witness a new technique in a demo and have time to incorporate it into a finished piece. This is the perfect time to bring a complex or time-intensive encaustic piece to life or to rework an older piece. You’ll get the opportunity to interact with and learn from guest instructors as well as other students. A tiered provided materials fee is due at the beginning of the workshop: $50 for 2 day, $70 for 3-day, and $100 for 7-day (check or cash). The suggested materials for this workshop are available at a 20% discount through a local Durham art supply store.
