Beginning Encaustic Workshop

Mt. Shasta artist Cathy Valentine will teach a workshop on the Encaustic process

On Saturday and Sunday, October 21 & 22, Mt. Shasta artist Cathy Valentine will teach a workshop on the Encaustic process, which uses hot wax and other materials. Cathy has been working with encaustic and teaching art for over 10 years. In this workshop students will learn the techniques that Cathy utilizes in her own practice, including mark making using handmade tools and india ink, creating texture by the inlay and extraction of elements and the separation of encaustic layers while maintaining luminosity and depth. The classes will be held from 11am to 4pm on both days, and two encaustic pieces will be created by each participant. The class fee is $125 plus $25 for materials, and class size is limited to 10 registered participants. All materials for the in-class projects will be provided, and there will be additional supplies available for purchase. Pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, contact Cathy Valentine at or call: 530-926-4723. Visit Cathy’s website to see more of her artwork:
