Encaustic Demonstration with Sharon De Valentin

Encaustic Demonstration with Sharon De Valentin  |  Cost: $5
Saturday 18 February, 11:30am - 1:30pm

The process of making Encaustic Medium from beeswax, damar resin and dry pigment is an art form in itself, a kind of alchemy that leaves room for experimentation and creative expression. Sharon De Valentin has been mastering this artform for some years now and has a wealth of knowledge to share. Join us at the gallery for a fascinating demonstration by Sharon and a question and answer session to follow. A light morning tea will be provided.
