Had a fantastic day with Lyn learning all kinds of techniques in encaustic art. Lyn us really knowledgable, great sense of humour and made the day fun. I would really recommend this as something a bit different to try. I loved it. Thanks for a great day Lyn.

Response from Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop:

Thank you for joining me for the day Sue. The sun shone, and you produced a lovely painting, using loads of techniques. Send me a photo of it on your craft room wall when you get back home. Hope you have a lovely rest of holiday! Take care Lyn

Response from Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop:

You didn’t mention the dancing! 🤣🤣 Seriously though, thank you so much for your generous review of the Photo-encaustic workshop day we spent together. I do get fully immersed in my students imagery and stories, and try my very best to make suggestions that will produce a final artwork that holds special memories. Thank you.

“I thoroughly enjoyed Lyn’s class. Friendly and approachable, it’s easy to think you’ve known her forever. There are a range of tools, beautiful R&F colours and an inspiring atmosphere to compliment the teaching, all of which will satisfy beginner students’ thirst for knowledge in the world of encaustic wax painting.”

Response from Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop:

Thank you for your review of the day Veronika, I hope that it has given you a flavour for what could be achieved by merging encaustic wax with your photography. All the best

We spent a brilliant day with Lyn who took us through the basics of encaustic wax art work. It was our first experience of using this medium. We hugely enjoyed ourselves and Lynn was a great tutor, kind, patient and lots of fun. We came away feeling very proud of what we had produced and would highly recommend this course to anyone. The tea and cake was an added bonus to what was a wonderful day.

Response from Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop:

Thank you ladies, so pleased that you enjoyed the day with wax! I think you both produced lovely pieces, do hope they end up on the wall. Safe onward journey. Happy 60th to Richard 🤣🥂x

Thank you for sharing all your knowledge so generously on what was a very enjoyable day you gave me space to experiment and play and I feel confident enough to get started with what I hope will be a new chapter in my art. Encaustic wax is a big subject 1 was amazed how much we covered in the day, and had time for tea and cake! Best wishes Debbie..

I had a great day with Lyn. I learnt so much in a relaxed, happy atmosphere with Lyn's expertise ensuring my mistakes were small ones. Not every artist can teach well but Lyn certainly can and I would recommend her workshops to anyone.

It was lovely to meet you today and thank you for your calm instruction and guidance throughout the workshop. You were very generous with your knowledge.

I love that you gave me choices and advice while we were working. I learned a lot too. It’s alchemy. I love my finished work, it’s definitely going on the wall and not in the loo!

Response from Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop:

Dear Sam, it was so lovely to meet you again, and share even more techniques using encaustic wax. I so enjoyed being able to share in your memories of Venice through your photographs, and feel that you have created a lasting memory of that time in your collaged piece. It has received so much praise on my social media accounts. Well earned.
Good luck with your studies and further exploration of encaustic wax. Thank you for the review. X

Dear Sam, so pleased that the day met with your expectations, it was great to meet you and share this special medium. Let me know if there is anything you are unsure about once you gather all your equipment and start your own encaustic studio!
Good luck 😀

I had a super day with Lyn, who is great at sharing her considerable knowledge and skills. Workshop was ideal, being in a quaint courtyard setting with plenty of fresh air and `Covid safe. I will definitely go back for a follow up course once had chance to practice what I’ve learnt. Cannot recommend this lady highly enough! Just wish my strict diet didn't prevent me from sampling the home made cake on offer!

Response from Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop:

It was lovely to meet you Linda, and share the delights of Encaustic wax. I feel sure that you will enjoy exploring this wonderful medium further, and of course are welcome back for a refresher day anytime. The cake went down very well with my family, who are always thrilled when my students are on diets!!!🤣 Enjoy the rest of your holiday

Angie, it was a pleasure to meet you and spend the day exploring all the versatile properties of encaustic wax in a safe, and socially distanced space.
The painting you have produced is very ‘you’ I feel. Balanced, calming and imbued with your spirituality.
Would love to do more with you in the future.
Take care

Thank you Lyn for a most informative and enjoyable day. Considering my friend and I were absolute beginners, I was delighted to end up with such an accomplished finished product.
Lyn is patient and flexible whilst covering all the basics, and her enthusiasm shines though it all. She has inspired me to have a try at home. I thoroughly recommend trying one of Lyn's courses.

Response from Contemporary Encaustic Wax Workshop:

Dear Kate and Mel,
Thank you for your review of the workshop. It was a pleasure to meet you both, and I was seriously impressed with your finished work on the day. Do keep in touch, would love to see more of your encaustic work,
Take care
Lyn
