Is it a photograph or a painting? Indulge yourself in five glorious days discovering the evocative beauty of Inkjet, LaserJet and professionally printed photographs secreted beneath translucent encaustic wax.

Learn studio setup practices and a myriad of encaustic techniques in a fun and mutually supportive atmosphere. Suitable for new or experienced artists and photographers.
