  4. It was a delight to have the honour to hold my last encaustic workshop with Maria. Thank you so much for joining me.

    Maria has kindly sent this testimonial -  I am a new artist to the world of encaustic painting so Dawn had her work cut out from the beginning.  We met in her studio in Lyme Regis for a 2-day course.

    Dawn was welcoming and well prepared, setting her studio out for the days ahead.  We spent the first day learning the art of sizing the first layers of wax, followed by Dawn sharing her extensive knowledge of the techniques used to build up the wax to enhance the piece.  This included using incising lines and forming texture, collage, carbon paper, photographs transfer, using different papers, pigments etc.

    The Second day was used to try out all the processes I had been taught. Under Dawn's one -to-one care.  I was able to complete several pieces of work.  Dawn was patience and chatty.  She openly explained the processes to her work and the things she has discovered over the years.  We had many cups of teas, chocolate biscuits and lunch both days.  I look forward to setting up my own home to continue the experience and will definitely be popping in to see Dawn in the future.  This was a 5 Star experience and worth every penny.

  5. 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.

    If you would like to book  a one on one workshop or why not bring a friend and join me for a group workshop.   Now that Spring has almost arrived Lyme Regis is a very beautiful place to visit and be inspired, it would be lovely to hear from you and a great opportunity to not only learn to paint with wax but to walk along the Jurassic coastline and find time to relax with a glass of wine or a cup of tea or even walk your dogs as the beaches here are dog friendly!.

     My workshops are also suitable for complete beginners - I can offer assistance based around your requirements so if you are a practicising artist or a photography or a complete beginner please join me in my lovely Studio by the sea!.  I very much look forward to hearing from you.
