Several of the people who gave presentations and workshops at the 3rd Annual Encaustic Conference & Workshops have posted links to free downloads of their presentations. If you go to the site for the encaustic conference http://montserratencausticconference.blogspot.com/, several paragraphs down you'll see, "Links to notes and handouts". Check them out!
The same site has links to various blogposts that contain lots of photos and commentary on the events at the conference. It was a great experience! I'm glad I went.
