Please join us at our next meeting.
September 10, 2014
“Celebrate: Wax & Weave”
Dip, Paint, Transfer.  Explore the possibilities of working hands-on with wax encaustic and textiles. Enkaustikos is the Greek work for ‘burn in,’ and the technique can be traced back over 2000 years to Ancient Greece. The technique was revived by renowned 20th century painters such as Jasper Johns and Diego Rivera. Since the 1990s, encaustic art has seen a resurgence in popularity with artists who have evolved the art, using various media, including textiles. Try it for yourself. No experience necessary!
The meeting will be held at Karma Creative art studio, 3962 Chesswood Drive, Toronto, Ontario. Please note that this is the second Wednesday of the month.
