What a brilliant day. My 12 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our day and were amazed at what we could achieve in the day. Phil is an excellent teacher and made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed the art form so much that we have bought the starter kit and we can't wait to have another go at home. We will definitely be back for another training session so that we can expand our knowledge. Thanks Phil.

Response from Phil Madley:

Thank you. Thank you. Look forward to taking you on the next steps of your encaustic journey. You probably don’t realise but this review has taken me to Platinum level. Also big Thankyou to all the people that reviewed my course x

This was a thoroughly enjoyable course. Phil was a great teacher, very encouraging. We made some excellent pieces of work which I am looking forward to framing. I hope to try some more advanced techniques in the future.

Bought the introdution to encaustic wax art for my friend for her birthday, great morning out - both complete beginners Phil was very patient and knowledgeable and above all else made us laugh and had a great sense of humour (considering we turned up an hour early!!) All in all a really fun class, learnt loads and have already siged up for the starter pack which means I'll be back!! Thanks Phil

Response from Phil Madley:

Thanks Karen for your kind review.
So glad you both enjoyed yourselves and learnt so much in a short space of time. Looking forward to seeing you again, will be in touch. Hadn't noticed you were an hour early...wondered who on earth was knocking on my door, certainly woke me up ; )
Cheers Phil

Phil is full of beans and extremely enthusiastic... he is very good at encouraging you and teaches all different ways to use an iron! Brilliant :) I learnt a lot and am excited about breaking open my starter kit! I would definitely recommend this course for anyone that wants to learn to use wax in art.

Response from Phil Madley:

Glad you enjoyed it. Hope to see you again.
Cheers Phil

Thank you for such a great review.
I am so pleased that you both enjoyed it so much.
It is very rewarding when people enjoy the day, and also come away with a feeling of achievement and learning.
It’s a win, win situation especially when we laughed so much…hopefully you can fit in another visit some time.

Had a fabulous time learning about encaustic wax at the taster session. It was a great gift and something different from the usual flowers/perfume. Phil gave clear and relaxed guidance of the basic techniques. As a result, I enjoyed practising the basic techniques and even had some samples to take home.
Thank you Phil for a lovely morning.

Response from Phil Madley:

Thank you for the kind review and so glad you enjoyed yourselves. Hopefully see you both again sometime. Cheers and Best Wishes Phil.

Response from Phil Madley:

Wow Thanks Emma, you were a fun trio. As you know I don't normally teach three but you talked me into it. Look forward to seeing you all again.
If you come for the day make sure you book the pub for lunch, it can get quite busy, unless you come in the summer when there are extra tables in the garden...unless of course it's raining.

Response from Phil Madley:

Thank you Lin. We certainly achieved a lot in only a couple of hours. Time does fly especially when learning is fun. See how you get on with your tools but if there is anything you want don't hesitate to contact me. Next time you come bring your iron etc so I can test it out. Cheers Phil.

I had a full day with Phil learning techniques and producing artworks I didn't think possible. He is an excellent teacher and the examples of his own work on view are inspiring. I enjoyed every minute of it and have already booked another day. I cannot recommend the course more highly (I'm off to have a play with my starter kit).

Response from Phil Madley:

Thank you Christine. So glad you enjoyed yourself and you did some great work in a relatively short space of time. I look forward to seeing your creations when we next meet. Hope you enjoy the painting you bought it is nice to know it has gone to a good home. Cheers Phil.

My daughter, grand-daughter and I had a great day with Phil at his studio in the gorgeous village of Wilstone on Saturday. We came home with about 8 samples and a finished picture that combined all of the techniques that Phil had shown us throughout the day. We were surprised how many lovely effects we could achieve without any previous experience. Phil is very generous in the way he shares his talent and is also funny and hospitable. We had a great time.

Response from Phil Madley:

Glad you all enjoyed yourselves, and it did all work out fine, with the three of you. Hope to see you again sometime. Best Wishes to you all.

Phil is fantastic, he explains everything really well and demonstrates what you are going to do.
He is full of inspiration and offers hands on help.
Really enjoyed the taster session and am hooked now.
Will most definitely book another course and would recommend everyone to have a go

Response from Phil Madley:

Thank you Tracey, too kind. I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves.
It means a lot to me. Cheers Phil.

Jane and I both enjoyed the tuition very much. A very relaxed and fun learning environment. All we have to do now is find the time to practice all those amazing techniques that Phil was good enough to let us in on.
The day went very quickly, too quickly really, so we will have to get back to Phil's for further tuition, maybe using the hot air techniques too.

You can see what the many years of Phils experience can achieve, something to work towards ha ha.

Thanks

My husband treated my dad & I to a day with Phil learning encaustic art - we had the best time! Phil is a great teacher, he is so patient and such good fun. We managed to come away with some lovely pictures- already framed and on the wall! Thank you Phil - hope you enjoyed the day as much as us!

My daughter-in-law wanted to try something new so she and I went on the 2 hour taster session for her birthday present; I had done some encaustic wax work with Phil in the distant past. We had a great time learning and practicing techniques and came away enthused to do more and clutching a bundle of mini works of art we had produced. A very relaxed and enjoyable session.

Thank you for such a fun and informative day learning all about this ancient and beautiful art form.
Phil is a great teacher and gives you a lot of encouragement which means you easily learn and can put this into practice on lots of work pieces that show you technique building up to a finished masterpiece where all you learn can be put into the one picture. I was very impressed with the amount that I achieved in a day.

Had a great day with Phil who is an excellent teacher. I especially enjoyed one to one tuition which meant the content and pace were tailored to me. The samples I produced of different techniques and the picture I created have impressed my family. Looking forward to booking another session when I'm ready to expand my skills.
