Encaustic means to burn in. I use hot wax and hot or cold tools to create images. Its great fun to do and the great thing is that you don't need to be an artist to have a go. You will go home with artwork that you can feel proud of.

This type of painting is great fun and is achievable for most people. On my encaustic art workshop you will learn how to use an iron and stylus - you will be amazed at the pleasure this art form can give. You will not only produce colourful work you will thoroughly enjoy the experience that painting can bring. You will become engrossed in the way the wax flows, the effects you can create. You will go home with unique paintings created by you.

Following the workshop you may wish to buy a basic starter kit which you can purchase from me. This will consist of an iron and stylus, coloured wax and paper. 

The workshop will take place in my art studio overlooking the garden and fields in Llanfor.    I am just one mile out of Bala on the A494 in the direction of Corwen.
