Join us for the first waxed surfaces short course we have run at OPEN.
During the workshop you’ll investigate the different ways wax can be used on paper and fabric; as a resist to create surface decoration, and a medium to alter the structure of a surface.
Initially you will explore pattern and mark making, using a range of wax resist techniques to produce a variety of exciting coloured papers and fabrics. These will provide the basis for your investigations into the properties of wax.
During the course you will be able to experiment with the techniques of translucency, structure and stitch. You’ll work in a dimensional manner, layering, manipulating and constructing your final samples.
