A few photos

These photos are still sort of the "setting up" stage, but you get an idea of the space...

We have two stations on the left side with some work tables in the middle. This is looking toward the front windows.

Looking toward the back of the space.

And another station on the right side.

Bonny had a workshop with 7 students last weekend, and I think she got all the electrical issues worked out. Encaustic can be tough on the electrical system!
