A Note on Materials Fees
Encaustic materials can be expensive. Lots of equipment is required for basic encaustic painting and collaging (griddles, irons, torches, etc.), not to mention waxes of many types and pigment sources. However, if you research the prices of other 2-day encaustic workshops, we think you will be surprised by how affordable all of our workshops are.
We require a materials fee so that students do not need to worry about buying encaustic medium and appropriate substrates ahead of time. Students do have the option of purchasing extra paint, panels, and medium during workshops, open studios, or lessons.
