Teaching the e*graphics process at Kalamazoo Book Arts
Teaching the e*graphics process at Kalamazoo Book Arts

I teach the encaustigraphic process in both one and two day class formats. Classes may be structured around either flat or sculptural forms, depending on interest. All students receive a detailed manual for the process, and the first half of a single day class focuses on making the e*graphic material itself, with the second half of the day aimed at ways to use e*graphics to make a variety of artworks and structures. For more complex forms, like mobiles and advanced structures, a second day can be scheduled. Participants work first with sample materials I provide, but are also invited to bring their own images on a flash drive so they can create original content and forms. I’ve taught sculptors, jewelers, and book artists as well as lovers of all things paper and process. It’s quite exciting for students to see their own ideas translated into this new material. If you represent a venue or organization interested in sponsoring me to teach, you can contact me at <encaustigraphics at gmail.com> (convert the “at” to the typical @ sign).

Happy students with e*graphics projects at the end of a class day
