Encaustic collograph printing... can't seem to get enough of it. I joined Elise Wagner in her Portland studio for her encaustic collograph printing class. Elise is the mastermind behind using encaustic wax for collograph printing. She's been experimenting with it for over 7 years, bringing it from an idea in her mind to where it is now - an emerging art form.
A couple of times, a year she opens her studio for a workshop in combining wax and printing. The rest of the year, she offers the classes around the country and in 2015 there will be a big event at R&F Paints in New York in August.

I took my first class in encaustic collograph at Atelier Meridian in November. I was totally hooked and now even more so. Learning from the printmaker's side to begin with and now more information from the encaustic painter's side providing me with a combination of perspectives.
