Today I was lucky enough to take a full day workshop with Canadian artist Aganetha Dyck who is in Charlottetown for the opening of her exhibition Guest Workers at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery. The workshop was pretty informal and centred around experimenting with various materials and processes and melted beeswax. I played with ripping paper, drawing, and linen stitching and then dipped each strand into the hot beeswax.
I also did a series of postcard sized dipped paper, lining them up to create a continuous horizon line. I like the texture of the layers of dips as well as the colour created by the increased opacity...incredibly three dimensional. And the yellow beeswax drips long the bottom are great.
