Saturday, JUNE 26, 11am to 4pm AND Sunday, JUNE 27, 11am to 4pm
Welcome to a weekend workshop exploring the world of oil and cold wax. This medium is a true game changer for people interested in working with oils. We will be layering, scraping back, using solvent reductions, adding pastels, stamps and stencils, and much more. Experimenting with a variety of tools such as brayers, clay modeling tools and “squeegies”, we will create beautifully layered paintings.
This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as people with more experience…Laurie will be working with people individually according to their level.
