Daniella Woolf in the studio!

How exciting to have Santa Cruz artist Daniella Woolf here in our studio, Desert Paper, Book and Wax, teaching a workshop in Encaustic with a Textile Sensibility. Participants from as far as the mid coast of Maine, Farmington, NM, Palm Springs, CA and way up there in Phoenix :-) joined a number of us Tucson IEA (Int'l Encaustic Association) members: wonderful and talented artists who really made our time together quite stimulating.

Dipping a sewn collage in encaustic medium strengthens and makes the image cohesive. Swoop 1 2 3...

Daniella demonstrated multitudinous techniques that inspired and enriched our technical vocabulary. We started off rather neat and tidy, but as all intense creative ventures should go, the studio gained a wonderfully energizing atmosphere, with lots going on in every corner...

A final wrap up with a walk through to view and learn from each others' art clinched the experience. Thanks so much Daniella!
