Encaustic books with wax + paper + thread! Combine encaustic beeswax with bookbinding to create unique journals. We will explore mixed media encaustic collage to create beautiful book covers with the luminous glow and delicious aroma of beeswax. After making our covers, we will sew them into journals using historical Coptic binding, which is lovely and well suited for writing and drawing as the pages open flat. Your books will be ready for creative meanderings!
