Encaustic Photo Workshop

September 18 @ 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

$300

Encaustic Photo Workshop

Downtown Asheville, NC Sept 18 11am-3:30pm at Luxe House Photographic Studio

The original Encaustic process (encaustic means to burn) was the ancient Egyptian practice of mixing Beeswax and Damar Resin, (raw form tree sap) melting it and applying it onto artwork.

The early Religious Iconic Art in Pharoah’s tombs contain Encaustic wax paintings, this technique is seeing a revival in my studio and many others, by encasing Fine Art Photographs in wax mounted on wooden board.

I am so excited to teach this process at my home studio here in Asheville.

We will learn how to mount our pre-printed images. (this is the only home work you will have ahead of time…. To create an image to print.  I will print images some days ahead of time as the images need time to cure before they are covered in wax) Our images will be mounted, painted and waxed on workshop day.  Taking my photography and creativity class on Sept 13th might be a fun first step to this class, but defiantly not a prerequisite.

300.00 Fee includes materials.

Please email me to reserve your spot.

Hope to see you there.
