as·sem·blage | \ə-ˈsem-blij | A group of things collected…a sculptural technique of organizing into a unified whole a group of unrelated and often fragmented or discarded objects…scraps, junk, odds and ends.

Join visual artist Candace Law on Friday and Saturday, December 8-9 for a two-day encaustic assemblage workshop. It will focus on an exploration of the 3-dimensional technique of using found objects with collage, and how encaustic can enhance creating assemblages. Some experience working with encaustic would be helpful.

Saturday will start off by walking through the “Dream Journals” exhibition of assemblage pieces by artist Larry Zdeb in our Gallery to look at his amazing work and consider how he creates them. Along with demonstrations, we’ll review some basic tools and simple mechanical ways to attach objects to panels and other surfaces. Then we’ll work through a couple of small projects as we incorporate encaustic into our work. As always, you’ll have ample individual work time.

The equipment, supplies, and some materials needed for this workshop are provided. However, you will want to bring your own found objects, various small items, collage papers or ephemera to incorporate into your artwork.

This workshop is not offered very often, so grab this opportunity while you can. And sign up early to get the early-bird price! The cost is just $295 until November 30 or $345 for later registrations.
