*Encaustic art, derived from the Greek word “enkaustikos,” meaning “to burn in,” is a painting technique that involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments are added. This molten mixture is then applied to a surface—usually wood, though canvas and other materials can also be used. The key characteristic of encaustic art is the use of heat at various stages of the process, both to fuse the wax onto the surface and to manipulate the wax once it’s applied, creating textures and effects that are unique to this medium.

*If you need to cancel your workshop booking, please let us know by 11 a.m the weekday before the workshop. To help us support the facilitator, late cancellations will not be refunded. A credit for future events could be granted at our discretion.
