Spring One-Week Session 2
April 9 - 15, 2017
Erin Keane, Vignettes, journals with encaustic covers,
3-1/2 x 2-1/2 x 3/4 inches
Encaustic Books: Wax, Paper, Thread
Wax nostalgic, wax poetic, wax philosophical, and wax creative. We’ll explore the use of encaustic painting in the creation of books and journals. Thin wood panels will be transformed into richly-layered and textured book covers. Papers infused with beeswax, imagery, and words will become journal pages, and these pages will be bound into tactile, tantalizing books. Daily demonstrations in encaustic, journaling, and bookbinding (Coptic/longstitch) will guide experimentation. Your books can be thematic, conceptual, or simply full of creative meanderings. All levels. Code S02D
