Valentine Ornament Workshop!


Why should decorating end with Christmas? I say leave up the white lights and decorate with Valentine-Themed ornaments! Come to my studio at 18 Garden Street, Rhinebeck, NY,  to play for an hour, and make these wonderful encaustic ornaments....bring a friend! (Max 2 people per session.) 
Friday January 23rd and 30th, from 10-6. Sign up for a slot at 10, 12, 2, 4, or 6 pm, for 1 or 2 people! 20.00 per person or bring a friend for 35.00 for both. Materials and instruction included.

These are my samples; you will do your own collages of course!  Encaustic is hot wax - like giant crayons melted on a hotplate, then painted onto wood forms (about 4" in size); each layer of wax is sealed with a heat gun or tacking iron, then text and images paper are encased in hot clear encaustic medium.  This art form was first used in Ancient Greece and Rome, then forgotten until the work of Jasper Johns and others nearly 2,000 years later. This is the perfect way to be introduced to it. Our very own R&F Handmade Paints out of Kingston, NY, will be used in the process!
