  1. I received a lovely email from the lovely Franine in Sydney, Australia!

    We had a great time in my workshop ,I cannot wait to travel to see Franine in Australia, next year! 

    'I had a fabulous 2 day intensive workshop with Dawn in May.  This was my first experience with the technique and Dawn's enthusiam for her craft was catching. Dawn was very attentive and informative, it is clear how much passin and knowledge she has for her Art.  She adapted kindly to my inexperience allowing me to experiment and move at my own pace.  She has also been wonderful at keeping in touch.  I highly recommend this workshop.

    It has been a very busy start to the year with a new studio space to paint and organise, which will enable me to now run larger group workshops, in the meantime whilst I am preparing my new studio I am still taking bookings for one on one workshops - if you would like to book an Encaustic Workshop please email or telephone - 07714196584.

    Lovely Elisabeth from Norway sent this testimonial - "I had a very constructive day in The Studio with Dawn.  The Intensive One on One Workshop - Private Lesson was perfect for me.  Dawn is generous and hospitable artist.  I came back to Norway with tons of ideas in my head-equipt with newfound knowledge about how to carry them out.  Uplyme was very idyllic (I recommend a stroll on narrow paths down to the ocean), Dawn is also a very pleasant person - who serves some good grub.  The trip was more than worth the while.  My own encaustic studio is now up !.  Elisabeth M.

    Thank you, Elisabeth, I was very honoured that you travelled all the way from Norway to attend my Workshop.  If you would like to book an encaustic workshop please get in touch
