Product Description

Beeswax Collage
Friday, November 10th 1:00-4:30PM

Instructor: Mia Semingson
This class is the perfect way to try out working with hot wax as a medium. Though related to encaustic, beeswax collage is something else again. Mia Semingson, co-owner of Two Hands Paperie, will explain the differences at the beginning of class as she describes the tools and materials you’ll work with. In beeswax collage, wax is the adhesive instead of glue. Because of its unique nature, the wax transforms papers and images in serendipitous ways.  There are sure to be some interesting results as you create your collage on a small piece of board.  To give you additional options to add to your bag of tricks, Mia will demonstrate a simple image transfer technique and how to use metallic foil for accents. Finish your piece by applying a lightly colored oil wash on top. The wash fills the nooks and crannies on the surface and highlights brush strokes in the wax to create a lovely patina. A side benefit of working with beeswax – the fragrance subtly scents the air with a marvelous and calming bouquet!

 Please bring the following materials:
  • Apron to protect clothing
  • Optional- Favorite collage materials, images, and photos. Make copies to use since an original will be covered by wax in the process.
Cancellation Policy
Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
