Workshops

 

I have teamed up with the Saltaire Craft House to offer workshops on painting using oil and cold wax.  

Cold wax is used at room temperature, without heat, and when combined with oil paints it can be used to produce depth and atmosphere to both abstract and landscape work.

The workshops are based at the Craft House in the world Heritage Village, Saltaire. Dates and availability listed below.

Beginners oil and cold wax workshop

These are two day workshops which are suitable for beginners.  Although not essential, some painting experience, in any medium, would be recommended.

In this experimental course you will be guided step by step on the methods of building up paintings in layers, using the cold wax, oil paints and pure pigments. The workshops will also look at mark making and will explore different ways to create textures and lines using a variety of tools and techniques.

Cost: £110 per person - includes all material and equipment.

To book your place please contact the Craft House directly. 

Intermediate oil and cold wax workshop

We will be experimenting with techniques for building up paintings in layers, using cold wax, oil colours, pigment sticks and pure pigments. Using a wide variety of tools, collage and mixed media we will look at new ways to create textures. You will be encouraged to use your favourite colours and marks to create stunning and atmospheric pieces.

Working with oil and cold wax involves a lot of experimentation and a willingness to set out without knowing where you are going to end up. You’ll learn more about your creative process and you will leave eager to experiment more with this medium.

The workshop will include information about techniques, as well as demonstrations and plenty of time for practice.
