Intro to Encaustic

with Shari Replogle

October 29, 2016

Marco's Paper, Dayton, OH

This super fun, completely hands on workshop introduced us to the ancient art of encaustic.

We explored many techniques including fusing, incising, transferring drawings, mark making, textures, scraping and revealing. Shari introduced traditional and non traditional tools and colors.

Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop with Shari.  She is knowledgeable, organized and a good teacher.  I came away with pieces I really like and the desire to do more encaustic.  In fact I signed up for one of her on-line classes.  And the workshop ran very smoothly with breaks and refreshments, timely and yummy!

Another great encaustic class with Shari Replogle!  Learning ways to attach and embed photos and then enhance them with texture and mark making and adding color with mediums such as  Pan Pastels. 

Eco Printing 

with Trish McKinney

Sept. 8 & 9, 2017

Wartinger Barn, Beavercreek, OH

What fun we had this weekend!  Leaves and mordants and dyes, Oh My!


Trish took us  on an inspiring journey of printing on fabric and paper with plants, flowers and rust. We finished up our 2 day adventure with printed scarves and handmade books.  

The Imprints of Autumn eco printing workshop sponsored by White Iris Arts with Trish McKinney and held on Sept. 8 and 9, 2017 was excellent!  The location at Wartinger Park Barn, the perfect Autumn weather, the instruction from Trish, which was thorough and fun, the planning and hospitality shared by Debbie and Brenda all contributed to this wonderful workshop.  The homemade lunches Debbie and Brenda provided were not only healthy but delicious!  I learned so much and enjoyed the company of all those who attended.

Coffee and Canvas was a blast!  Lots of paint and smiles happening on this night.  We created a mixed media canvas, finishing off our project with  glazing and a shimmer of gold.  Always fun to try new techniques.

Loved this event! Had a wonderful time and the instructions were fantastic! Thank you so much!
