Art Courses Tauranga

Cold Wax

Artist’s Workshop, Tauranga

The beauty of working with cold wax in your artwork is the flexibility to play, experiment and explore while focusing on the process, not on the end result.

Have fun coming up with ideas and playing with techniques that can be used for cold wax art creations. We will have plenty of time to experiment and be able to enjoy a glass of wine while we work and get to know each other.

You will leave this class feeling inspired and hooked on this fun and creative medium!

Join a workshop or request a group booking. At present have decided this year of 2022 to focus on my studio only, so have put any workshops onto hold.

Art Workshop Tauranga

Encaustic Art Workshop

With ‘Kiwi Sue’, Artist Sue Mac Dougall

The intricate art of encaustic wax painting uses beeswax in its natural yellow state along with high-quality, imported colour-rich pigments from Greece. 

Get creative with heat guns and other mediums to produce a beautiful artwork to take home and hang on your wall. 

During this workshop, you will learn the core techniques of:

  • Layering
  • Fusing
  • Blending
  • Collage
  • Mark making
  • Embedding

Hang out and meet other creatives in our wonderful art learning space while discovering the joys of colour and bathing in the delicious scent of beeswax. Add layers to your piece by bringing your own materials; think shells, cotton, lace, string or trinkets. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase encaustic products and pigments that you won’t find elsewhere in New Zealand.

For 2022 have decided to put all workshops hold while I focus on my studio work.
