Learn how to create wonderfully bright and amazing pictures (abstracts, flowers and landscapes) using highly pigmented wax, a hot iron and stylus.
Encaustic wax is an ancient art of using hot tools to melt coloured wax, adding to various surfaces to create a wide variety of paintings.
This workshop will enable you to learn how to create abstract designs, flowers and a simple landscape, building up like you would any other painting. Sky, background, mid ground, foreground and additional details such as flowers, fences and birds. It will also include learning how to create streams using a very simple technique. You will create many pictures of basic landscapes in different colours and with different additives.
Classes with Carole Boyer are limited to just 5 students so that you receive more attention and are able to learn more about wax painting and techniques in a small group setting. Refreshment is included in this class.
All materials will be supplied and can be bought at the end of the class if you want to continue at home.

She is a regular exhibitor at the Peterborough Artists' Open Studios and exhibits also with the Peterborough Art Society of which she is the Secretary. Carole also sells framed and mounted pieces of encaustic wax art along with cards and bookmarks.
We are delighted that Carole is now offering a full programme of encaustic wax workshops for all abilities and interests. She delivers a half day workshop where you can create more labour intensive, complex pieces through to our taster sessions, where you can learn the very basics in an hour and make a piece of art which you can take away all for £10.00. A lovely treat or a little outing with friends after lunch. You can book these to make sure you get a space but if all else fails you can simply 'drop in'.
