ENCAUSTIC PAINTING WORKSHOPS
Andrew offers two-day Encaustic Painting Workshops.
Encaustic painting is fun and easy, using natural aromatic
melted beeswax and oil paint mixed in for colour.
A very friendly medium, the fast drying time allows one to create captivating works that will ignite the imagination. The warm liquid wax is applied to a wooden surface with brushes. Each layer is then gently fused using heat, resulting in a luminescent painting. Relax and be inspired while painting in a casual studio environment in the tranquil countryside. The results will delight and surprise participants. No experience is necessary.
