If you love layers and luminous rich texture, you will love working with wax. This hands-on studio small class size course introduces participants to painting using a heated Hot Box, griddles, torch, heat gun and pigmented beeswax.

Each participant will have time with me to work through questions. Wax, brushes, medium, substrates for painting and printing paper for monotypes will be provided.
