Every year I hear from students who want to take my encaustic workshops but either live too far away to fly in for just one or two days or prefer a more immersive environment where they can learn many techniques in a short time.

With this in mind I offer 5-day intensive workshops called Wax Week, that combine some of my most popular classes with some brand new techniques that will keep you creating new work for years to come.

It was such a busy summer that I didn’t have time to share photos of my two Wax Week classes in July. These sessions included artists from 3 countries and 7 different states, which is the most diverse crowd I’ve ever had!

You’ll see from the photographs below that we not only had fun, but everyone made terrific art as well. During these classes life-long friendships are often formed, with friends meeting up again and again as they find new classes to conquer together. I hope you’ll join our Wax Week family soon!
