STUDIO WORKING DAYS
One thing that I’ve realised, is I love working with other artists.
It can be very lonely working on your own, the mind monkeys can soon set in, and you start to doubt your work, especially when you’re an encaustic artist, as there are so few of us!
Or, it can just be plain inspiring working alongside someone else, whatever medium they are using. I often find a persons style of painting, or just talking to new people, sparks a host of other ideas off in my head.
With this in mind, I have decided to run a handful of studio working days each year. They will be untutored, and be different depending how people are intending to work.
They will run from 10am – 4pm, and have three different price points:
– £45 Studio Space only. Come and journal, daydream, read a book, work on your own project, using your own materials, and get that quiet space you need to finish those projects.
– £75 Studio Space, including use of my hotplate, irons, heat gun etc. but using your own materials.
– £110 Studio Space, including tools and encaustic materials, up to 12″ x 12″ in size. (Bring your own ready to use board, or you can buy one from me if arranged at time of booking.)
These sessions are all untutored, I will likely be working alongside you on my own projects. If the weather is nice, you’ll be able to sit out and enjoy the garden, a perfect sketchbook location!
If you would like to book a studio session working with encaustic, especially the beeswax & dammar resin R&F style, you must already be familiar with the health and safety aspects, and either have been on a beginners course with me, done my online course, or have been working with encaustic in your own practice for some time.
These can only be booked via e-mail because of the variations, which will affect availability, so contact me using the form below if you are interested in these.
The next one will be on Friday 5th July. 9am – 3pm.
