Encaustic art beginners class - paint with molten wax



This encaustic art course is suitable for beginners and improvers. It's a wonderful vivid artform and great to produce quick pictures as well as adding to your art palette. I also love using it for card making.

We will look at the wonder of painting with molten wax, using an iron and heated stylus. Students will be shown several techniques to get started, and then we will work on abstracts and landscapes as well as using the heated stylus to create more detail. Encaustic art is fabulous for beginners and for those who do not consider themselves 'artistic' because the results are instant and the pictures vibrant.

Earlier this year, I attended a two-hour encaustic art workshop at the National Bee Spring Convention. As I now wished to increase my skills, I booked a one to one, full-day course with Toni. What an excellent tutorial it turned out to be. When setting up the day, I requested specific techniques and themes to be covered (seascapes and Christmas cards). Toni not only covered these areas but also taught several techniques that I had not previously tried. A very pleasant, relaxed and skilled tutor, Toni makes learning new encaustic art skills fun, informative and hugely rewarding. I certainly hope to study more encaustic art skills with her in the future. I highly recommend her.

I have just a 1:1 half day course on encaustic art with Toni Peers. Having dabbled in this form of art some years ago I had a basic idea of what to do but this course provided an excellent reminder of the various techniques I had previously tried as well as teaching me some new ones. Very enjoyable and extremely well taught.

The encaustic art workshop I did with Toni was great! Loads of fun and very well taught. The process seemed almost magical and I came away with an assortment of pictures that I felt quite excited to have been able to produce.

Fabulous course! I found Toni very engaging and I was impressed with her knowledge. I appreciated her friendly manner, which helped me to relax, and enjoy the class. I was especially thankful, as Toni fitted me in at very short notice. However she was still well prepared, and very professional. I even had notes to take away. I thoroughly recommended Toni and have already booked my next class next week.

What fun I had learning Encaustic painting from Toni! I am anxious to do more painting at home in Florida. Yes, I traveled from America to learn some crafts from Toni -- what a great way to spend a holiday.

Had a great morning 1:1 with Toni who had done lots of preparation before I arrived to make sure the morning was a success. The morning exceeded my expectations by a long way and I now looking to buy some encaustic kit for myself. Thank you Toni.

I attended an enamelling course in March 2015 with Toni.
It was a great day, as an absolute beginner I left really happy with being able to try out several techniques and left very proudly with my 3 pieces from the day.
Toni was a great teacher, informative, easy going and I really felt like I gained a lot. I can't wait to get started at home now!!
Thanks again Toni!

I did a class on Saturday and was amazed at the amount of stuff I produced and techniques I learnt. I am now an artiste!!!!and have the evidence to prove it. If you are thinking of doing this, book immediately. Toni is a fantastic tutor and she will tease the creativity out of you.

I did a wax art course with Toni and was amazed at the number of techniques and pieces of artwork I produced. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, learning a skill I will continue to use. Toni is an excellent and fun teacher. She let us loose to experiment with lots of different media and colours and was very encouraging. If you want to learn wax art, book a class with her!

I LOVED this course, my friend and I both found it relaxing and we are now hooked!

Toni came to my home to run the workshop for me and some friends. We had a brilliant morning and learnt so much about encaustic art. We all produced pieces of artwork during the session and I was so taken with this art form that I bought all the stuff I needed the same day! Toni is a really approachable tutor, very friendly and eager to share her passion with others. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering taking up encaustic art as a hobby or who wants to learn more about it.
