First Fridays at the Beach
Ok, so smooshing isn't really technical term, but it's the best way to achieve an encaustic monoprint masterpiece! Have fun exploring and experimenting with wax and oil pigment. No drawing, no brushes--just smooshing, scratching, and slithering around in the medium.
Enrolment is limited (sorry!), so please register at www.firstfridayswinnipegbeaches.ca.
Fee: $30, most supplies included.
