Unlock the captivating fusion of encaustic and photography in this hands-on workshop designed for artists seeking to broaden their mixed media skills. Encaustic, an ancient technique involving molten wax, offers a unique and versatile medium for artistic expression. When combined with photography, it creates visually stunning and tactilely rich artworks.
