* Encaustic art, derived from the Greek word “enkaustikos,” meaning “to burn in,” is a painting technique that involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments are added. This molten mixture is then applied to a surface—usually wood, though canvas and other materials can also be used. The key characteristic of encaustic art is the use of heat at various stages of the process, both to fuse the wax onto the surface and to manipulate the wax once it’s applied, creating textures and effects that are unique to this medium.

* Shellac , derived from the Hindi word “shelak,” which translates to “scale” or “covering,” refers to a resin secreted by the female lac bug on trees in the forests of India and Thailand. This resin is collected and processed into flakes. Shellac is used to create layers of texture and depth. When applied over encaustic paint (which is wax-based), shellac can be selectively burned or melted to achieve a variety of intricate patterns and glossy textured effects .

*If you need to cancel your workshop booking, please let us know by 11 a.m the weekday before the workshop. To help us support the facilitator, late cancellations will not be refunded. A credit for future events could be granted at our discretion.
