RusTEA Encaustic

  • Maiwa East 1310 Odlum Drive Vancouver, BC, V5L 3M3 Canada (map)

With Daniella Woolf

$295 [Includes $80 lab fee] Class limit 14. Nov 17-18 (Sat-Sun) 10am-4pm.

This innovative two-day workshop addresses the techniques of rusting on paper, on fabric, and directly onto the encaustic surface. Rusting works beautifully on encaustic medium and encaustic paint. We will also experiment with rusted  paper and fabric as collage elements. You will complete a sample book of all your experiments.

We will approach tea bags with artists’ eyes, manipulating them in all possible ways. We will rust, weave, burn, sew, paint, stuff, stamp, print, collage, draw, and transfer on them, string together, attach, dangle, drape, and sculpt them, all while drinking the exotic tea of your choice. Two days of fun, innovation, and wild and waxy experimentation.
