This Experience Includes

Relax and be inspired while painting in a casual studio environment in the tranquil countryside. Encaustic painting is an ancient technique of painting with natural aromatic melted beeswax and oil paint mixed in for colour. The warm liquid wax is applied to a wooden surface with brushes. Each layer is then gently fused using heat, resulting in a luminescent painting.

  • Personalized instruction to help you create your very own encaustic painting
  • All necessary materials
  • Individually boxed picnic lunch – includes half a sandwich, soda, dessert, and grazing assortment with all local ingredients. (Vegan & Vegetarian options available)
Due to COVID-19, masks must be worn during the workshop. No exceptions.
