If you are new to encaustics, or just wondering what else this versatile medium can do, this is the class for you. Encaustics is more than just melting wax and pigments together; there is so much more you can do! Anne, your instructor, will guide you through some of the many ways encaustic can be used. Each week you experiment with techniques and materials as you build and layer your artwork to its completed form. You will combine, colour, collage, image transfers, texture, and mixed media as the course progresses. The grand finale will be lighting it up!

There are many ways to decorate a ceramic pot. In this workshop, we will be focusing on how to screen print textures and transfer them onto leather-hard ceramics using slip and underglazes. If you love to draw or paint and want to add personality to your pots, this is a great class for you.

On Day One, we will be screen-printing our imagery on paper, while learning the finesses of screen-printing with underglazes and slip.
On Day Two, we will apply and transfer all of our images from paper to clay - another step that requires finesses and practice.

Use the power of the sun to dye any piece of fabric in combination with various techniques. For example with this medium, you can create patterns on fibres without using a dye bath and chemicals (pot of dye water). Instead, we will be using resist methods to intentionally prevent UV rays from exposing specific areas of our fabric. We will use techniques and materials such as Shibori, Sashiko, plants, yarn, and acetates to create our patterns.
