Add to Calendar

Join the Ranch’s resident artist Lisa Thorpe for an intimate workshop to explore encaustic collage techniques. Create small collage pieces on wood using art papers, old maps, photos and other ephemera. The collage is then covered with hot encaustic medium (a mixture of resin and beeswax). The retreat includes demos of techniques and lots of time to play and experiment. All materials are included and no prior experience is needed.

Instruction on Saturday is from 10am-4pm, with a break for lunch. The evening will be left to you to read, relax and wander or return to the art center to explore on your own. Sunday morning, Lisa will provide more instruction, and you can continue your creative pursuits until lunch. The workshop will conclude with a post-lunch sharing circle.

Leader: Lisa Thorpe. See some of her art at lisathorpe.com
