    “What a wonderful way to experience a new medium. Debra supplies all the materials, tools and her guiding expertise to create successful art pieces.”

  2. Annette Cohen, New Hampshire

    This informative workshop was all inclusive and enabled me to experience the full range of encaustic painting under the expert guidance of an accomplished encaustic artist, Deb Claffey. It was a great experience. I highly recommend it.

  3. Marcia Wood Mertinooke, New Hampshire

    A perfect introduction to using encaustic! Deb covers the history, safety, and techniques needed to be informed and create with this medium. With materials included, there is plenty of time to experiment and have any questions answered. This introduction class is truly encompassing and enriching.

  4. Anita Adler

    This workshop was a marvelous introduction to working with wax. The medium is seductive, Deb is a gifted and expert guide, the studio was very well equipped, and the beautiful setting made me feel like I had really gotten away from it all. I absolutely did not want the day to end, and I can’t wait to return to learn more at the next workshop!
