Encaustic Monotype with Dora Ficher

Encaustic Monotype with Dora Ficher

$95.00

Encaustic monotypes are one-of-a-kind prints made from wax paintings. Pigmented wax is melted onto a heated metal “hot box,” manipulated with brushes, sponges and other tools, and then transferred to paper with gentle pressure (no press required). The result is a color rich, complex print. Learn the basics of encaustic monotype in this exciting workshop including the multitude of techniques that can be used to create your painting/print, and the range of papers available. No experience necessary.

Dora Ficher was born in Buenos Aires, and grew up immersed in energy and color, inspired by the people, the art and the architecture. Working in the encaustic medium, her bold palette is an expression of this energy and cherished memories of her native country. She taught for many years at the Plymouth Meeting Friends School, and was co-owner/director of Fun in Sun art camp for almost 30 years. Be sure to see her work in the Cerulean Arts Collective Associate Members Exhibition, on view December 11 – January 12. For more information about Dora, visit doraficherartblog.com.
