Partnership Opportunity!

Creating Encaustic Art is truly an experience like no other.  As the wax heats and melts, the colours blend and swirl in unexpected ways, creating gorgeous layers of texture and depth.  The delightful aroma of beeswax permeates the room and all of the senses are engaged as the whole body moves throughout the process.

Encaustic Art pairs well with tastings of food or wine, craft beer, or cider.  It can be either incredibly fun and uplifting, or extremely relaxing. 

Kim will work closely with you to create an experience that is perfect for your guests or patrons no matter your needs. 

Edge of Grey is a fully mobile studio that strives to use sustainable practices and support other local artists and businesses. Contact Kim today to see how how a partnership with Edge of Grey can work for you!

Kim is committed to helping her community through the donation of art and workshop time and wholly believes that the arts should be accessible to anyone who wants to learn! To date, Kim has volunteered her time to teach over 75 people the beauty of encaustics. If you have a group or community event that you think would benefit from Edge of Grey, please contact  Please note, that you can also help by booking a workshop at regular price as this helps Kim to support her non-profit work.
