Learn to create fascinating structures that leave the two-dimensional plane. Come to the workshop with your own variety of materials including wood, cardboard, metal, clay, plaster, fiber, paper, objects from nature, or treasures you have held onto for way too many years. Experiment with how the materials may be dipped, painted, wired, glued, hammered, but most of all, waxed. You will start by making your own encaustic medium with pigment application. Learn fusing, transparency, glazes, layering, building up texture, line techniques, carving, image transfer, encaustic safety, and mold application. Create your own silicon molds using a brushable silicon material, and then learn how to cast wax and a quick setting liquid plastic. Explore new uses for encaustic, a wax-based paint, composed of beeswax, resin and pigment, which is kept liquid on a heated palette then applied to an absorbent surface. Returning students may work on advanced projects.

Designed for anyone who aspires to cast small-scale bronze sculptures or create wearable bronze art. You will learn the process of “lost wax” casting, and bronze finishing techniques. Your instruction will include an introduction to the materials, methods, and safety measures of bronze casting, as well as how to construct your own small-scale foundry furnace in your own studio. Expect to produce and finish one small bronze work, weighing less than 4 pounds. Learn about an electric table-top caster and the silicone mold-making process. Returning students may work on advanced projects. You must attend all required instructional sessions in order to understand and follow all safety guidelines.
