Think you're not creative...? Think again...!
Have you always yearned to create beautiful colourful creations? Have fun in the process? Be free and creative... BUT, think you CAN'T PAINT, or DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START...?!
ANYONE can paint with beeswax...! Easy enough for complete beginners, yet also challenging enough for experienced artists looking for a new medium...
My videos are designed as if you were doing a workshop with me in my studio, relaxed, fun, and packed full of step by step tips and information.
Here's how this course works:
First we go through the basics. Step by step tutorials, showing you how to set up your equipment, how to apply your first layer of wax and how to clean your iron.
Next, you will be shown how to create lots of beautiful shapes using different areas of your iron. Use the base, the edge, or the tip of the iron to create very different marks, experiment yourself and understand how to create those results.
After you've gained confidence in applying wax, and you're beginning to understand how to create textures, you're ready to pull all of those skills together and create your first monochrome fantasy landscape... I will take you through the process of building that picture, step by step. You can stop and start the video at your own pace, and follow along every step of the way.
Next, we'll move onto blending colours, lots more fun to be had understanding how to blend, and different ways to apply colour... Again, we bring it all together, this time, with a colourful fantasy landscape.
At this point, you will have a GREAT grasp of the iron.
Taking those skills further, in the last section of the course, you'll learn alternative techniques such as using your iron as a MINI HOTPLATE, and creating LARGE SCALE pieces if you want to take a step up.
By the end, you'll have learnt enough skills to confidently create beautiful unique creations of any size, we even cover tips for mounting and framing your wax, to hang on your wall...!
This course has enough waxy ideas for you to put into practice and KEEP YOU ENTERTAINED FOR HOURS!
Every piece is totally unique, no two will ever be the same.
There's an additional Waxy Art and Inspiration Facebook group which anyone reading this can join right now! Just click and join the group, it's a friendly space to share your creations and get feedback.
Julie has been running wax workshops for almost ten years, it's her passion to inspire others to be creative.

I first discovered Encaustic Wax Art in 2012, and it was love at first sight! I was absolutely entranced by this magical medium, and set out to learn as much about it as I possibly could. It touched me on a soul level like no other. On exhibiting my work, it seemed people were as entranced by this medium as I was, and so my teaching began. I've run workshops, demos, art talks and 1-1's to thousands of people over the years, from small art clubs, to The National Honey Show, and Living Crafts, helping complete beginners, who claim not to draw a straight line, through to professional artists wanting to expand their skills. Teenagers to grandparents. I am passionate about sharing this medium, which is a truly healing art form, I've seen it's therapeutic benefits time and time again, so, I'm on a mission to share it with as many people as I can, in a fun, friendly, and accessible way for all.
