Encaustic Workshop with Mel Williams ‘The Gift Shop’ Dinas Dinlle, Caernarfon, Gwynedd.
15th February 2015 10.30am - 4.00pm
If you are tempted by encaustic art don’t be afraid to come and have a go. Whether you are a complete novice at artwork or are skilled in other mediums it doesn’t matter. This one day taster course will take place at The Gift Shop Dinas Dinlle.
On the day of your course you will be able to use my encaustic tools, wax and paper. This will give you an opportunity to see if you enjoy the artform before purchasing a kit.
Its a good idea to wear clothes that are not too special just in case you are a messy artist like me! I do have aprons you may borrow.
How much will the course cost? - £80 per person.
What's included in the price?
The course includes coffee and brief introduction to encaustic art on arrival
• Use of encaustic art tools, wax and paper • 2 hours of tuition
• Light lunch tailored to your choice
• 2 hours of tuition (and afternoon tea)
• Any artwork produced by you can be taken home
This type of painting is great fun and is achievable for most people. (Over 12 years of age) On my encaustic art introductory course you will learn how to use a hot encaustic iron - 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 and the effects you can create. You will go home with unique paintings created by you.
Following the course you may wish to buy a basic starter kit which you can purchase from me. This will consist of an iron, coloured wax and paper. For the future I can offer further courses which can either take place in my studio in Bala or at The Gift Shop.
• I run courses for a maximum of two people in my studio at home. • Workshops for larger groups of 6 can be organised.
• Courses can be tailored to your developing skills - just ask.
