No experience necessary, as Kathryn will guide you step by step in a variety of easy application processes ideal for the encaustic process. You will not only treasure the experience, but will enjoy creating a true, one of a kind, piece of art. In case of inclement weather the class will have to be cancelled and all monies refunded.
