Encaustic Workshops

In Goderich, Ontario

Join me for a workshop at my backyard studio in Goderich, Ontario.

I love to teach encaustic painting, a mixture of beeswax, damar resin and pigment. It has been my medium of choice for the past twelve years.

 It is such a generous medium….exciting discoveries emerge in the process.

But…

Because of the Corona virus pandemic, I am not currently offering encaustic workshops. I look forward to connecting with you again in my studio when the coast is clear. 🙂

Encaustic paint is a mixture of beeswax, damar resin and pigment. Colours are melted in tins on an electric griddle.

Workshops take place at my backyard art studio in Goderich, Ontario – accessed by a flight of stairs

Classes are intended for adults but suitable for youth aged 12 and up.
