Sebastopol, CA - March 15, 2015 - 10:00 to 4:00

Encaustic workshop with Susan Stover

Are you a printmaker, jewelry artist, photographer or mixed media artist and are thinking you want to incorporate wax into your work? Or perhaps you want to continue working with just encaustic? This class is for students who have had some encaustic experience and now want to bring their own ideas or way of working to it. We will work as a group to discover possibilities for each student and have time to focus on individual needs. We will be looking at other contemporary artists working in encaustic and discussing some of the challenges and concerns of working in this medium.

Surface Design + Encaustic - Susan Stover


Mendocino, CA - April 11-12, 2015

Surface Design & Encaustic with Susan Stover

There are endless options for unique mark-making, layering and patterning when combining surface design techniques on fabric with wax. In this 2-day workshop we will explore contemporary and traditional techniques such as silk painting, batik, and discharge on silk. Students will also experiment with traditional surface design tools and learn how they can be adapted and used directly with the encaustic process. Demonstrations and discussions will illustrate how the fabrics can be used in an encaustic painting and how the fabrics and wax can interact. Students will be making lots of their own unique fabrics and collaging them into encaustic paintings. This class is designed for students that have had some experience with encaustic.

Silk Painting with Natasha Foucault


Mendocino, CA - March 14-16, 2015

Silk Painting with Natasha Foucault

In this intensive three-day experience, Natasha will teach you to use the essential tools for silk painting – gutta resist, dyes, and salt. Learning from an instructor whose toolbox of techniques is extensive, you will quickly see how you can turn even the most basic shapes into rich, deep images glowing with soft, modulated color. Her techniques for painting landscapes, still life, and portraiture – especially featuring water and reflections in glass – are surprisingly easy when she breaks them down and teaches them to you step by step. This class will be memorable, full of beauty, and fun. In addition to all the usual supplies, some practice silk will be provided for those students who have come to silk painting for the first time.
