Doing Encaustic art the original way.
Encaustic artist, author and international instructor Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch returns to Australia with new workshop offerings in Brisbane.
Encaustic is the ancient art of painting in melted pigmented beeswax. Imagining this process done thousands of years ago begs the question, how did they melt the wax? What did they use to paint with? In this workshop we will explore these questions and put the original working conditions, as best we can, to the test in our modern day, thereby living a little closer to the earth, and to the experience that is a deeply integral and inspiring creative practice.
