2 Day Art of Papermaking & Encaustic on Paper @ The Encaustic Art Institute / Starts August 4th, 2012
The ancient forms of Papermaking and Encaustic merge in this two day workshop taught by Jacqueline Mallegni and Sherry Ikeda.
Saturday: Learn to make Japanese style paper, washi, from kozo, the bark of the paper mulberry. We will form sheets of beautiful handmade paper using a 5×7 inch mould and deckle. The paper made during this day-long workshop will be made specifically for use with encaustic. Participants will learn how to process kozo fiber from beating to sheet formation to drying. Foraged plant material from the Encaustic Art Institute grounds may be added for color and texture.
Sunday: this is a great workshop for beginners interested in learning the ancient art of encaustic (wax) painting. Learn how to combine encaustic and paper through collage, direct painting and monoprint using heat guns, torches and tacking irons to fuse and build layers.
The workshop will take place on the beautiful grounds of the Encaustic Art Institute of Santa Fe. Pre-registration required.
Please bring a bag lunch and comfortable clothing, shoes and a hat. We will work both in/outdoors.
