Beeswax Collage Workshop

There are still places left for my Beeswax Collage class this Sunday, April 27th at the Nova Studio in Point Richmond, CA. Point Richmond sits at end of the San Raphael Richmond bridge and is easy to get to from anywhere in the Bay area. We have students from Sacramento, San Jose and Sonoma in addition to the closer cities Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco.
Please click on the Nova Studio link on the left to see all the cool classes offered there. It is primarily a soap and beauty supplies making studio, but they let me in to teach paper arts classes along with Angela Silva who teaches some intensive image transfer classes.
Please come and learn the fundamentals of beeswax collage, where no additional glues or adhesives are required to create mixed media collage. We use canvas boards that are further embellished with wire and beads for a funky look. All supplies and tools are provided - so no need to bring anything besides yourself and a creative outlook!
I'll give you background papers, ephemera, copies of vintage photos, and embellishments like lace and beads and shells to create two 5"x7" wall hangings. If you would like - you can certainly bring some personal touches. But as far as photos - you need to make copies on matte paper. Be careful - they must be heat proof! Some copies will fade away when exposed to the heat of the melted wax.

This is a fun class for beginners and experienced collage artists alike. Working with melted beeswax is fun and gosh darn it, it smells great too!
