Course Start Dates
About the Course
These workshops run regularly every third Saturday of the month. They've been running for over 5 years so lots of techniques have been learnt.
These workshops are relaxing and we have regular attendees and also people that pop in now and again. We welcome newcomers at any time.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Everything you need is included in the price of the course but if you have your own tools you are welcome to bring them
Please bring an apron just in case. It is not always necessary but just as a precaution as the wax can stain clothes.
I have a workshop techniques folder that is available to look through .
I generally plan the lesson but I'm open to doing anything anybody fancies doing.
We work using the iron and stylus method and we use stamps fabric tissue etc for different techniques.
Karen is a great tutor, she has knowledge, enthusiasm and patience.
It is a very enjoyable experience that you want to do over and over again.

Karen hosted an Encaustic Art session in my little shop. Everyone who came really enjoyed themselves. It was great fun learning a new craft technique with step by step guidance.

We had great fun and were able to produce some interesting artwork using wax within the two hours.

This is really fun. Karen supplies great materials. The wax can do all sorts of things and even if you have never done it before you can still produce a masterpiece. Give it a try, quite addictive.

This is an amazing art - encaustic - I first did workshops some years ago in Winchester and then when I moved to Chandlers Ford a local lady Karen Tait was teaching this art and I joined her classes. Karen has been teaching art for some years and her classes are always full. Encaustic art is truly awesome. Join Karen at Velmore Community Centre in Chandlers Ford you will never regret it.
