"Rocket Science" - Encaustic on Wood
A. Tomczak

(Waxing) "Island Door" - Photo Encaustic
L. Vann

This workshop is designed as a continuation of previous bookmaking and alternative process workshops at my studio. New and former students are welcome. This workshop is for all levels. We will concentrate on the various methods of integrating photographs into the surface of various art papers, cloth, wood support, canvas, glass, plexi-glass and metals. Non-silver processes will be emphasized including blue print, photocopy transfer, as well as hand painting and acrylic transfers.

Text methods will be demonstrated - hand printing with inks, rubbings, rubber stamp, collage, old-fashioned typewriter as well as computer generated text. Examples will be shown. Surface treatments will be introduced such as coating with wax and hand painting with encaustic (pigment in hot wax). The workshop will emphasize the photographic image, but is not limited to this and will include other modes of expression - drawing, poetry, collage and illustrations.

You will learn skills that you can continue using in your home or studio. This workshop is for all levels.

"Blue Boy"
A. Tomczak


Cyanotypes and Vandyke printing are simple, experimental and two of the oldest photographic methods available. Learn these antique photographic processes using paint-on emulsions in royal blue and earthy brown.
Smooth surface papers and cloth (cotton, muslin or silk) are coated, dried and exposed in the sun or UV light and then developed in water. This workshop will include photo encaustic and laser copy transfers.

You can continue with this process at home without expensive equipment, and it can be combined with drawing, painting and collage.

Bring large black and white negatives (digital or photocopies on acetate are fine) pressed botanicals or other flat objects (feathers, lace, transparent materials, x-rays or old negatives). Anna will show how to print on laser transparency film to make a large black and white negative.
