Introduction to encaustic painting, 27th January

Join me for a day introductory workshop, learning the ancient art of encaustic Painting in my studio located on the beautifully scenic shore of Lough Derg, close by Williamstown Harbour, an ideal backdrop for creating atmospheric artworks in a relax and inspiring environment.

During the day long workshop, you will have the opportunity to discover the fascinating art of Encaustics, an ancient painting process using molten beeswax, resins and natural pigments.

I will introduce you to the basic techniques of encaustic painting, sharing its spontaneous virtues of working with texture and colors and its versatility with building up layers. You will have the opportunity to learn easy and effective techniques in a fun and relax atmosphere and create beautiful artworks to bring home.
Using an experimental approach to explore technique and manipulate the paint, you will be able to create a beautiful artwork and embellish it using a wide range of techniques. You will leave with a printout containing all the information you need as well as a list of suppliers.
