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).

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.

Thank you for the great review, it was a pleasure teaching you but I think you are both naturals and so keen you did encaustic art the next day too...

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.

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

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.

I don't think I have enjoyed a day so much for ages. I didn't even know what encaustic art was until my friend persuaded me to join her for a day course. It was brilliant. I produced some amazing pictures which I am delighted with and this is now going to be my next hobby! Loved it, loved it, loved it!!

We had a really fun day with Phil today and surprised ourselves with the artwork we produced. Phil creates a very relaxed atmosphere and is a highly skilled artist and teacher. Can’t wait to do more encaustic wax work and look forward to making a return visit.

What can I say that hasn't already been said. Had a great time with a patient and humorous teacher. Despite being a complete novice and not artistically gifted, I came away having done some great pictures. Really looking forward to returning for more. The only downside is that Phil doesn't live in my village. I'd have a lesson every week!

My friend and I have just done our second all day course with Phil and are already planning for the third! Laughter and fantastic creative art all day! Phil is an excellent teacher whose enthusiasm for his art form sweeps you along to achieve so much more than you thought you could, and encourages you to learn more ways to develop your encaustic art.

Phil is a great tutor putting you at ease learning the different techniques. I didn't expect to come out of a 2-hour session with such a selection of encaustic wax pieces made by me! Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful day yesterday with Phil. We had never tried encaustic wax before but with Phil's expert advice we were able to produce lots of lovely picture straight away. Phil's patience, encouragement and good humour made this day the ideal birthday treat. The only problem is we can't wait to do so more!!
