Encaustic art courses, classes and workshops taught all across the UK. Encaustic or 'hot wax' art is the activity of using heated beeswax and colours to create art. Because of the nature of wax, sculpture can be incorporated into this wondrous craft, as can the use of other materials you might like to blend or melt in. The use of electric irons, hotplates and heated stylus has brought something of a resurgence of interest in encaustic art, though it was actually used by the ancient Egyptians in 100 AD! Come and join an encaustic art course, workshop or class and learn this beautiful, rare and ancient craft of encaustic artwork!
