Encaustic Memory Boxes [Workshop]

Do you love art but are completely out of wall space? Is your home small but your love of art is big? Then join encaustic artist Marcia Streithorst as she walks you through the steps to craft your very own mixed media project on an upcycled cigar box. You will paint the top of the cigar box using encaustic medium (e.g. wax with resin) and a heat gun. In this workshop you will learn how to safely use encaustic supplies. If you have any paper or found objects you would like to incorporate into your project, feel free to bring them. Students will walk away with their completed cigar box. A $20 supply fee must be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop. This workshop is suited for all skill levels.
