working hands

Twenty participants attended the Encaustics/ Beeswax Collage workshop. You could smell the sweetness of the beeswax as soon as you entered the building.....which drew you into the "hive" 1311.

August 5th and 6th Encaustics and Beeswax CollageWestern Michigan UniversityTuesday & Wednesday 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Come and discover the sweetness and luminosity of working with the ancient and contemporary art of encaustics (pigmented beeswax) and beeswax collage.
Participants will learn about the history of the medium and honeybeesthat support it. We will create several small scale works in experimental encaustics,Xerox transfer, and mixed-media collage. No experience required - just a sense ofadventure, a hotplate, and some brushes. Check out the blog for Melissa's work and links to encaustic information
