Did the 2 hour (+!) taster course with Phil followed by a morning and afternoon top-up. Really excellent value, learning from an expert in a relaxed friendly, easy going environment. Learned a lot and produced work which was much admired by the drawing/painting class I attend and more importantly, by my wife! Wholeheartedly recommend Phil to you. (And the pub next door serves a really good pint!)
Have been going to Phil for encaustic wax sessions for about two years. Wax painting/designing is so creative and Phil comes up with new techniques all the time. What excites me is the creativity it produces. I love all the techniques. Phil is a great exponent and an excellent teacher.
My wife and I did this together. Excellent value and Phil is so encouraging, patient and an excellent teacher. For two complete novices to be able to each do and take home pictures of such quality using the techniques that we were shown was truly amazing. I have never enjoyed doing art as much before in my life. We lost all track of time and we are getting Phil’s starter kit and will definitely be having more sessions with Phil. It was a shame the session had to end; we both switched off and became absorbed in this art form. Thanks again for a great time Phil. ...
Did the 4 hour session. Had an excellent time, for me learning a new art form in a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. I learnt lots & produced work that has been admired by family. Phil is an excellent teacher & very encouraging. I enjoyed all the techniques shown.Would highly recommend & I would go back for additional sessions.
