Goma Gallery of Modern Art. Saturday 21st October from 11.00am to 2.00pm
In this workshop you will learn a little about encaustic painting. This is a method of painting using a hot wax medium to which coloured pigments may be added, if required. The molten medium will be applied to a rigid surface, most often a wood panel. Encaustic is a stable and long lasting medium.
Participants are encouraged to bring scraps of text/ images etc to embed into their paintings. The best scraps to work with are photocopied images. Tissue paper can also be added as well as gold leaf.
You will incise images into encaustic and add colour to the incisions.
The workshop will be led by artist Ger Kennedy, who will supply all materials with the exception of gold leaf. Please bring images/text that mean something to you.
Ger Kennedy is a Tramore based painter and printmaker. She studied fine art in the UK and Ireland, and has had several group shows and a solo show. Her work is in collections in Europe, Australia and America.
The price of this Workshop is €80 pp and materials are provided together with refreshments. No experience is required.
