Binnie Birstein is teaching Two Encaustic workshops.


Prints, Papers & Wax & TRANSFERS!
March 1 & 2, 2014 10-4 Saturday-Sunday
Day 1-Saturday
Learn how to incorporate your prints and other materials into your work with encaustic. Encaustic can be used as paint as well as a medium to adhere your prints, drawings and papers. We’ll cover safety, a brief overview of contemporary artists working with papers and wax. Participants will work in a variety of techniques including brushing, dipping, incising, stencils, collage, and more.
Bring your prints and drawings to see how you can rework and discover something new!
This is a wonderful opportunity to see how you can turn older work into a source of inspiration…take your work in another direction.
Day 2-Sunday
It’s all about transfers! Starting with black toner transfers, we’ll go beyond with some surprising techniques for incorporating other types of transfers, including color into your work. We’ll cover at least 4 more types of transfer techniques.
Details of what you need to bring will be provided upon registration.

1 day $150/ 2 days $275
