About the facilitatior:

The course is presented by Marina Wilbraham that has been presenting encaustic art classes in Gauteng, Cape Town, Knysna, Bloemfontein and Stilbaai since 2019 and established Encaustry (Pty) Ltd that provides encaustic art supplies and promote encaustic art in South Africa.

*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.

* Monotype, Monotype printing, originating from the Greek words “mono” (single) and “typos” (impression), is a type of printmaking that produces a unique, one-off print. An artist applies ink or paint directly onto a smooth surface such as glass or metal and then presses paper onto the surface to transfer the design. In encaustic art, monotype techniques can be adapted by applying encaustic paint to a heated plate and then transferring the molten design onto paper or another substrate, creating a one-of-a-kind print with rich texture and vibrant colour.

* Collagraphs, derived from the Greek words “kolla” (glue) and “graph” (to write), is a printmaking technique that uses materials glued to a base to create a textured plate. In encaustic art, these plates can be pressed into warm encaustic wax to transfer intricate textures and designs, merging the depth of encaustic paints with the rich textures of collagraphy for unique artistic 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.
