Christina Lovisa brings her ‘Two World’s Collide” workshops to the hive from Ottawa, and stretches the boundaries of what is possible when mixed media meets encaustic. We delve into new territory by affecting the substrate before even coming on top with wax by: burning, fossil paint, incising, transferring, drywall compound, concrete bases, foils, rub-ons, and so much more! She has developed a series of workshops that continue to change and challenge advanced hive students to push their edges. Christina has recently written a book on this: Two Worlds Collide, which is available for sale on our website and in the hive. Image: mixed media encaustic by Christina.
