Join R&F Handmade Paints in collaboration with Women's Studio Workshop as we create waxed handmade paper works. During the first two and a half days, participants will work at the WSW papermaking studio using cotton, abaca, flax and Art Farm fibers exploring the basics of hand papermaking. We’ll create collages applying techniques of layering, embedding, translucency and opacity, stenciling, pulp painting, and embossing. After lunch on Wednesday, we will travel to R&F Handmade Paints where we will use our handmade paper as starting points with encaustic. After Laura presents an introduction to basic encaustic techniques, students will create deeply layered pieces by working directly on the papers or mounting the sheets on panels. We will be saturating, bending, burnishing, dipping, staining, transferring, drawing, and carving into these luscious materials.
