What is Encaustic Art?
Encaustic painting is a mixed media technique that involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments have been added. This can then be applied to a surface such as canvas or other materials.
Encaustics can be used to add texture, often to abstract art. The medium can be used as paint,
adhesive, or both, and it mixes well with oil-based media. It is a satisfying art form which never produces the exact same end product twice!
About Karen Tait
Karen is an avid crafter. She is involved in sewing and art workshops.
Before running workshops, she used to create items such as textiles and jewellery items and attend craft fairs. After sitting at craft fairs and chatting to customers she realised there are many of creative people out there who are interested in learning so she set up the encaustic art workshops about 8 years ago.
Karen includes sewing and jewellery making in some of her creative workshops and she likes to build communities getting students involved in creative activities whilst being inspired by each other.
So why not join Karen for a relaxing afternoon learning or practising encaustic art skills?
Karen uses beeswax and different heat tools so you will be able to create amazing paintings even with no painting experience. Create a variety of paintings by transferring onto fabric and adding different media.
