Do you work with fabric but want to try encaustic?

Or maybe you're interested in learning fabric techniques to use with your encaustic?

Are you interested in how the pieces of your life come together in your work?

Whether you have a story to tell or want to dig deeper into your own artistic motivations, we will look at how the pieces of our histories come together to influence how we work and what we create.

Using fabric and paper, we will make our own collage materials to embed into encaustic.

Techniques include:

  • gestural mark-making
  • batik
  • sun-printing
  • image transfer
  • staining
  • stenciling
  • incising
  • glazing


  • discussion and slide presentations
  • working with modules and in a series
  • layering and depth
  • transparency and opacity
  • repetition and pattern
  • display and finishing options.

Emphasis will be placed on cultivating your own visual language. All levels welcome.
