Learn Encaustic at the Alton Mill Art Centre, Caledon, Ontario

We offer on-going, 1 to several day workshops, and now have a half-day introduction. No previous artistic experience is needed for any of our Encaustic 1 or Half-day Workshops. Experience is needed for all of our other workshops and for Open Studios.

All of our workshops take place at our encaustic school: ‘the hive’ in the Alton Mill, near Orangeville, Ontario. The Alton Mill Art Centre is a wonderful place to come and visit, with over 30 artists, galleries, and a fresh food bakery and cafe on site. Walking trails through the woods make this a fantastic getaway.

NOTE: Pre-registration is required for all our workshops, and Give it a Whirl!

Dates listed may change, so please check first, via email or phone.


A few words from students…

“I was able to break through my fears, reaching out and trying new things. The energy was the best – I am more willing to surrender and trust. I’ve been looking for that for five years. It was the best workshop ever!” Heather, after a 4 day Intensive: Sinking In Even Further

“Dan was so helpful – he had a great sense of when to leave space and when to step in. I would absolutely recommend this to my friends!” Darlene, from the hive

“Andrea’s teaching style really encourages experimenting and risk-taking. It opens up a creative channel because you are not afraid to make mistakes. Such a great, creative exploration – thanks so much!” Penny, from ‘the hive’

“…thank you for a wonderful learning weekend. I had a great time and you are a terrific teacher. I will be busy in my studio this week applying what I learned – can’t wait to get started.” Elsie Campbell, after Encaustic 1 & 2 at ‘the hive’ in Alton

“Andrea is an excellent teacher. She demonstrates each step and method slowly, in a logical fashion, and yet she’s having fun with it. It’s clear that she loves what she’s doing. As you watch her, you just can’t wait to try it yourself.” Leslie Newumann, Annual Encaustic Conference, Beverly, Mass. USA

“The most organized and giving instructor that I have ever had at the Art School.” Sandra, Southampton Art School

“…very relaxed and fun class, Andrea’s organization was great and very thought out…” Wendy, St. Thomas Artists’ Guild

“Students felt free to ask any questions, Andrea’s style was precise and very comfortable… this was the most interesting workshop I’ve taken in a long time.” Beth, St. Thomas Artists’ Guild
