Testimonials from former participants:

 

I had the pleasure of attending an Encaustic workshop with Isabelle and I’m not sure I can find the right words to explain how much I got out of it.  It ticked all the boxes.  I got to spend the whole day being creative.  I got to watch an artist teach what she so clearly loves and that is good for the soul… you can so easily get swept away with Isabelle’s excitement, enthusiasm and pure love for what she does and I got to be part of that, what a privilege. I got two beautiful encaustic pieces that I treasure.  I got a new medium to play with, I made new friends and I most certainly got Isabelle’s contact details so I can attend the next workshop.  If you want to explore your creative side, I couldn’t recommend this more.  You have nothing to lose but you have all the above to gain.

I really enjoyed Isabelle’s encaustic workshop in An Gairdin. Isabelle’s easy manner and clarity of her instruction was so easy to follow. I had no idea what encaustic Art was even about so I was so pleased at the end of a two hour session to have my own creation completed. I would certainly go again if she returns to Portumna.

Wonderful workshop with Isabelle. So generous with all her information and expertise! This is a lady who is passionate about her work and such a generous lady who is willing to share all her knowledge and experience for all to enjoy. A true spiritual person following her muse.

Big thank you to Isabelle for hosting a wonderful workshop last weekend in her studio on the shores of Lough Derg, my second one so far. Highly recommend this for anyone who wants to get creative and be inspired, check out her website and blog for more magical molten marvels. Bonus points for lovely food and coffee, and letting me use the blowtorch!
