Maker's bio

Hi, I am passionate about encaustic wax as I hope you can tell from the reviews by previous students. Being able to pass on my knowledge and little tricks of the trade is a real pleasure. I have been painting all my life, but ‘found’ encaustic whilst studying as a mature student at Art College. I was hooked! I am a member of the International Encaustic Artists organisation (IEA) and a prize winner for my encaustic work. My workshops are always fun. We pack a lot in, but the time just flies!

Pat Wilson reviewed: Private photo-encaustic workshop with Lyn

"Have just spent a few days with Lyn doing both the encaustic wax art and photography course. Knew absolutely nothing about either and no artistic talent however Lyn is a great, patient and very knowledgeable teacher. Her love of her art clearly comes through, really enjoyed my two days. She is very welcoming and good at giving guidance without taking over any project. Many thanks once again Lyn"

Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop responded:

"Thank you Pat for your enthusiasm and company. You now have some knowledge of encaustic wax art (a lot more than many people), and produced some lovely work! Lovely to meet you. Good luck with your future artistic endeavours Lyn "

Jenny C reviewed: Private contemporary encaustic wax workshop with Lyn

"Lyn is a lovely, warm person and a great, tolerant teacher. She covered so much over the day and I came away with loads of information on encaustic techniques, and an encaustic painting that I am very proud of, I couldn't wait to hang it."

Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop responded:

"Thank you for your kind words Jenny. Look forward to seeing more of your encaustic paintings. Kindest regards Lyn "

Rick Foulsham reviewed: Private photo-encaustic workshop with Lyn

"Had a fantastic day learning all about photo encaustic with Lyn. Picked up so may great techniques and was immersed in the experience for the whole day. Lyn is friendly, knowledgeable, approachable and very patient. There is a lot to learn but so many opportunities to explore. I left feeling really inspired to go away and realise all my creative ideas. Only comment - more delicious ginger cake please!"

Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop responded:

"Makes my day when I can pass on my passion for this wonderful medium. So pleased that you were immersed, and hope you take this momentum and do more yourself with your fabulous photographs. Thank you for your review and it was lovely to meet you Rick. All the best Lyn "

Rachna L reviewed: Private contemporary encaustic wax workshop with Lyn

"So, I did this amazing encaustic workshop with lyn in her beautiful, compact studio in the picturesque town of Portland .. had been looking around to find someone to teach encaustic and certainly was not disappointed.. lyn is a great teacher and ready to share all her knowledge and experiences .. she showed how wax could be used in so many different ways with outstanding results .. I was a complete newbie to this medium.. having heard but never tried it .. enjoyed and learned so much .. Thanks Rachna"
