  2. I feel very honoured to have receive such a lovely testimonial this week by the lovely Heidi who visited me in my Studio here in Dorset all the way from Switzerland, here are just a few of the lines from the testimonial she kindly sent to me.

    ' When I arrived at your studio, you have me a warmly welcome.  All materials for the workshop was ready, so we could start immediately, you have such a great knowledge with wax and different materials, so I could ask a lot how to use these.

    For my first steps with encaustic, I am very lucky that you, a great artist accompanied me.

    Thanks a lot dear Dawn spending the time with me.  Best Wishes, Heidi, Switzerland.
