Firepaint With Me, introduction to Encaustic Painting ( 4 weeks Course)








I recently did a one day online workshop with Isabelle Gaborit . It was very inspiring and I learnt a lot. Isabelle is so generous with her time and knowledge and on top of it she is so at ease and authentic that time flew by and I really enjoyed every minute.

Thank you Isabelle! Lila S.
