Firepaint With Me

 

From live workshops to private sessions,

in venues around Ireland or in the privacy of my encaustic studio on the scenic shores of Lough Derg,

or online

let yourself be seduced by encaustic painting,

an ancient painting process using pigmented molten beeswax

 

‘Isabelle inspires creativity.

She is a great artist with talent and passion and you can see it clearly while looking at her art or experiencing her teaching.

She is a fantastic person to spend time with, encouraging you to experiment and test your boundaries.

I strongly recommend her workshops. A relaxing experience which leaves you with craving  more.’

Monica, workshop participant

 

Are you intrigued or curious about encaustic painting?

Are you an art enthusiast wanting to discover a new versatile creative process?

 

At the Wild Fire & Wax studio, I provide an artistic experience with a difference, where participants are coached to explore their own ‘fiery side’ via the medium of encaustic painting, an ancient painting process involving molten pigmented beeswax and blowtorch.

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

Art Classes for everyone: absolute beginners and developing artists alike. During the workshops, I introduce the participants 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 relaxed atmosphere and create beautiful artworks to take 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

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 have been awarded the Fáilte Ireland Safety Charter, which confirms that I am following recommended guidelines and that I have been trained in hygiene and safety controls.
