Join Isabelle for an introductory workshop, learning the ancient art of encaustic painting in Cregal Art, Galway city. During the day-long workshop you will have the opportunity to discover the fascinating art of Encaustics, an ancient painting process using molten beeswax, resins and natural pigments. You will be introduced to the basic techniques of encaustic painting, sharing its spontaneous virtues of working with texture and colours and its versatility with building up layers. You will have the opportunity to learn easy and effective techniques in a fun and relaxed atmosphere and create beautiful artworks to bring home. Using an experimental approach to explore methods and manipulate the paint, you will be able to create a beautiful artwork and embellish it using a wide range of techniques.
