INSTRUCTORS: Douglas Mehrens, founder of the encaustic art institute, painting in wax for over 35 years. Anita Worsham and Nancy Byres, working at Santa Fe Clay for years, will be assisting Douglas.

Combine the two oldest art forms together! Whether you are an experienced clay sculptor or have never worked with clay, or an encaustic artist who has never worked with wax, THIS CLASS AND WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU! Wax and bisqued clay work beautifully together. Start simply with a wax surface on clay, or add poly resin over the wax for a glazed and fired look. Working on 8” x 8” white bisqued tiles, students will be able to create up to 4 distinctive tiles. Please also bring your own bisqued sculpture pieces to paint if you have some. All encaustic paints, equipment and tools will be provided. The clear poly resin is odorless and non-toxic. The beauty of this art form is the fusing of wax, layer upon layer, on the bisqued clay. The clay loves the wax and vice versa, and the final coat of resin gives it a glaze and more depth. Just bring your imagination and your own lunch!

This class is a collaboration between Santa Fe Clay (in its 43 year) and the Encaustic Art Institute (in its 13 year). Both studios are located in the Santa Fe Railyard Arts District.

** Saturday, workshop attendees will meet at the Museum of Encaustic Art for a free tour, viewing the samples of encaustic/wax work with mixed media. Parking at the Museum will be free. Everyone will walk to Santa Fe Clay for the workshop from there.
