July 24-30, 2017 Dumas Bay Centre, Federal Way (Seattle area), Washington
Since 2010 EncaustiCamp has been the place to find rich immersion in all things encaustic. Multiple instructors teaching their unique techniques across the breath-taking water-front campus; meals, lodging and all your needs taken care of; the inspiration strives to leave no one wanting!
Like the artists’ colonies of the early 20th century EncaustiCamp has evolved into a place where like-minded creatives gather to inspire, inform, educate and enliven each others work, practice and spirit. This workspace-shared weeklong indulgence in wax and artistic development through community and collaboration is an immersive way to move your work forward. As always, we strive to reach more, teach more, inspire more through joint participation. See the schedule link for a run down of what the retreat will offer and contact Trish with any questions or clarifications; it is always wonderfully, creatively, rich.
Note: Because encaustic is a hot medium, the studios are unique. Materials are set up in stations with preset color selections and communally used. Therefore size and quantity of work are controlled due to these constraints of material and electricity. The retreat is created to spur on exploration, experimentation and inspiration. Please do not come intent on finishing an exhibit or working large. The facilities and community studios simply can not support such things~
Think of it as cross-pollinating 🙂 Register here!
