549.Encaustic Art

Members and their Encaustic Artworks

Wilma Mann hosted an Encaustic Art workshop at her home during our July break for eight members. We all had great fun creating our masterpieces, using coloured waxes and a hot iron. This method of wax art has been used for over two thousand years and some of these pictures have been preserved from the time of Ancient Greece.  The name Encaustic comes from Greek meaning to burn.

Members were able to create a couple of paintings and frame their work to show off to their families.

Wilma is one of our newest members and so we are doubly grateful to her for hosting the workshop and for her expertise in the field.
