  4. Just a reminder for those who have been sending emails and asking if I will be exhibiting during Dorset Arts week...and why I wasnt in the brochure!. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I had to cancel.  A hard decision to make, however there is always another year!....which means I have more paintings to create and finish!

    I am really looking forward to visiting other artists during Dorset Arts Week this year and hoping to catch up with friends who will be exhibiting their wonderful art work.

    Paintings are available and for sale directly from my Studio and also from other outlets which I will list under a separate blog, if you would like to purchase one of my paintings or commission I would be very happy to hear from you, please drop me a line at [email protected] or call 07714196584 to arrange a visit.

    If you are visiting Dorset during DAW or any another time over the Summer, do pay a visit,  I shall be painting all Summer in between other jobs so please do email or call beforehand!. I dont plan to travel again until the Winter!.... If I dont see you, have a lovely Summer, you can also visit my instagram page at Dawn Brimicombe, where you will find regular updates for my encaustic wax paintings and mixed media art including ceramics!.

  5. Here is a lovely review from one of my recent workshops here in Sunny Devon/Dorset, I happen to live on the borderline only a mile from Lyme Regis, it is a great place to live and work and an especially great place to visit with its inspiring landscape and wonderful Jurassic coastline what could be better than learning a new skill whilst enjoying some good food and a walk along the beach!.

    "Visiting Dawn in her workshop back in March this year was a real treat, in every sense of the word.  The weekend course was given to me for a birthday present from my husband.  Uplyme in Dorset is beautiful and working in Dawn's garden workshop was a very peaceful and interesting to experience.  Dawn took me through everything from the beginners basics of applying molten wax to the substrate to encaustic photograph transfer, engraving, shellac burning to name a few.  Dawn has a true gift in her work with encaustic and she generously gives her workshop attendees her many years of experience and knowledge.

    I have no doubt I shall be back for more at some point in the future.  Thanks Dawn for a truly great course."
