Short. Therapeutic. Simply loose yourself in creativity, use wax intuitively and enjoy. Ages 11+ to 99+...!
This is a short, gentle workshop, explaining the intuitive process of applying hot molten wax.
Simply loose yourself in creativity, quietly reconnect you... with you...
Use colour, texture, and the delicious fluid sensation of applying liquid wax with an iron.
It encourages the freedom to express yourself, without any pressure of reproducing a perfect finished piece.
This workshop attempts to recreate what I have experienced time and time again during my in person workshops; a transformation of emotions, a deep connection through art, and the simple pure joy of creation, with the application of hot molten wax.
My wish is that you have similar experiences.
This style of encaustic painting is safe and easy to do.
Suitable for wide range of ages from 11+ through to 99 and beyond...!
"If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint" Edward Hopper
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. A breath of fresh air to blow away the cobwebs of life. Will you step in and discover it's magic?
