Description of the week end immersion into encaustic painting
Are you art enthusiast wanting to discover a new versatile painting process in an intimate studio setting and a beautiful location? Do you want to recharge your creative batteries and create beautiful atmospheric artwork and embellish them using a wide range of techniques in a relax and inspiring environment?
Then, I invite you to spend the week-end in the beautiful hidden gem which is East Clare and discover the art of encaustic painting, an ancient painting process using molten beeswax, resins and natural pigments.
Right on the shores of Lough Derg awaits my encaustic studio, a tranquil spot set apart from the hectic fast paced life, a place to inspire and provide tranquillity for those who want to immerse themselves in their creativity. This two day workshop in my quiet light filled encaustic studio, with views of the lake and forest, is the perfect opportunity to take two days for yourself, to focus on your work, and take it to the next level. During the workshops, participants will be exposed to basic, intermediate and advanced techniques in working with encaustic medium. Whether you come with a project in mind or a blank canvas, you will find support and input, from like minded people, while being given all the skills you need for creative growth. Allow the meandering through woodlands and boat rides to inspire and generates new visions, while taking the opportunity to meet fellow artists.
We will share what inspire us and you will be shown you different ways to translate it into your artworks.
Soak in the landscape, refresh and create!
