Designing from the Heart w/ Kaye Iverson
A 2 Day Mosaic Workshop:

Saturday Oct 3 & Sunday Oct 4th, 2009
10- 6pm Cost $200 * Lunch Provided

TO REGISTER ONLINEThis workshop is designed to assist students in creating their own mosaic designs. Experience what it is like to focus on the journey rather than the final piece. As an added benefit, you will discover the nurturing and relaxing value of mosaics in one’s life.

Principles of design and composition will be covered. Some of the topics we will take a closer look at are color, textures, scale, balance, contrast, and rhythm. There will be a wide variety of materials to choose from for your projects including: glass, ceramic, millefiori, beads, pebbles, and shells. An indoor project, 12” x 12” will be designed.

There will be about 10 hours to work on projects. Grouting will not be completed due to time restraints, however, a grouting demo and instructions will be provided. In addition, a demonstration of tools will be given for those who need assistance.

Tools will be provided in class to share.
Everything will be included in the workshop fee, however, student’s may want to bring:
* Tweezers * Glass or ceramic cutting tools if you have them. * Safety glasses are required! If you have some, bring them. Otherwise you may have to use spares that I have that may not be comfortable for you. * Jewelry, beads, and small collectable items that you would like to add to your work.

Patricia "Trish" Baldwin SeggebruchMixed Media Artist from Washington

Encaustic Wax and Journaling-2-Day Workshop Saturday October 17th & Sunday October 18th, 200910 am – 5 pm each day
Cost $250 *Lunch will be provided
$25 supply fee payable the day of the workshop
From the author of Newly Released "Encaustic Workshop: Artistic Techniques for working with wax"

We will be exploring the basics of Encaustic Wax with a strong emphasis on adding words to your artwork, Hence, "Encaustic Journaling"

Through the use of image transfer, letter punches, word and number inclusions, collage layering and textural expression, beeswax has become my paper, my paint brush and my pen!

Come join us in creating stand-alone or multiple storied paintings in encaustic that will reflect, dissect and express your own voice and inner musings.

The workshop will begin with demonstrations in basic encaustic techniques, followed by time to become comfortable painting in wax. From there all participants will explore numerous techniques as Patricia demonstrates then assists students through their own projects in wax journaling.

Trish will supply the wax, encaustic colors and the heating materials for use with encaustic so that you don’t have to invest in materials before you know what it’s all about!
I’ll also bring a small selection of collage materials and carving tools, but you’ll need to bring your own personality to infuse your work!

Collect collage material, interesting carving tools, objects to press into the wax, image or photo transfers, and ephemera that you would like to embed in the wax.
Google ‘encaustic’ online to get ideas of what other artists are doing in this medium—you’ll get some great ideas for tools and items to bring.
