Come play with a variety of ways to use a uniquely lightweight, translucent and vibrantly colorful sculptural material made with paper and encaustic wax. An introductory class in making and creating with encaustigraphics is offered at the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center on February 29, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We’ll start by learning how to make the e*graphic material with provided prints, and then branch out into using your e*graphics to create “super simple sculptures” with fun and easy techniques. There are many ways the material can be used— for sculpture, window art, books, jewelry and more— and you’re encouraged to bring your own images (digital photographs or scans of artwork) to class so we can discuss ways to translate them into the creation of your choice. I’ll also be demoing how to construct large forms like those shown on the home page of this site.
