About the Course

EncausticHouse is an online course platform where Encaustic Art is the focus of learning. The House is a community with a social interface so learners on the same courses can communicate and discuss if they choose to.

Encaustic Art is focused on learning the basics of using the iron to melt waxes, create abstracts, patterns, landscapes, fantasy images, use with stamps and interweave with your own existing creative interests and skills. It's a lot of fun and creativity can be quite unexpected. You don't need to be able to paint or draw but it helps if you are open to the living moment - that is where creativity happens - in the present, within the process.

If you are an Encaustic Art beginner then the Basics course will give you a fantastic platform. Michael Bossom has been a leading light within the wax melting world for more than 30 years. This Basics course is based on his twin DVD set and Book - Encaustic Art Basics. The EncausticHouse team are Michael and Wemke (from the Netherlands) who have created a wonderful and inspiring course.
