Workshop sizes are always small to give you more personal time with the tutor and to provide a more enriching learning experience. Importantly, you are provided with plenty of work space so you can spread out your work. One on one workshops are available on request.

Encaustic - painting and sculpting with wax is one of the oldest forms of art in history. The term encaustic comes from the Greek word enkaustikos which means to burn in. Encaustic is great fun and amazing art forms can be quickly achieved. 

The workshops run from 10am until 4pm each day and cost $120 per day which includes encaustic medium and paints, 4 boards for working on each day, plus other assorted materials (approx value $30), and refreshments and lunch. One to one tutoring is also available.

Encaustic Art 1: Colour & Mark-making is the introductory one-day course. It is a pre-requisite for taking the 2-day workshop Encaustic Art 2: Layers & Images, unless you have already attended an encaustic workshop elsewhere.

Encaustic Art workshops March-May 2018 in my studio in Scott Creek in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, just half-an-hour from Adelaide CBD. For a brochure, click here. To book, click here.
