Courses

With growing interest in encaustic art, new courses are springing up across the country. Please see our links page for more information.

Here at The Bee Tree we offer two courses. To take part in a course, you can either visit us or we can visit you. No prior experience of encaustic art is required.

Prices include all materials and loan of tools during the course. Concessions and discounts are usually available for groups. Ask us about these if you want to make a booking.

For parties and conference activities we are always available and open to negotiation.
