Get together a group and Kim will come right to your home, cottage, restaurant, or venue of choice.  There is flexibility with the size of the group, but prices are based on 4-10 individuals.  Discounts are available for larger groups.

An encaustic workshop designed specifically for your group in the comfort of your own space is an experience truly like no other!  You will be taught the basic techniques necessary to create your masterpiece; including safety of the equipment, layering and fusing of the wax, embedding of objects, image transfers, and gouging techniques.

Workshops are $90 per person for 3 hours, with all supplies included.  No experience necessary.  Additional travel fees may be applicable if outside of regular service area.

Ideal for Celebrations, Bridal parties, Showers, or just a Girls' Night Out! Also makes a unique and wonderful gift. 

If you are a charitable organization, special rates are available.  Contact for more details.

Team Building

Kim has many years of experience working in the non-profit sector with some of our most vulnerable populations.  This knowledge coupled with her Certificate in Conflict Management and Mediation from Conrad Grabel University College, gives her a unique perspective when working with diverse groups.  Team building workshops are customizable to your organization or group's unique needs. 

Kim will work closely with your team and can create an experience that will leave a lasting impression; whether it be simply an enjoyable time of arts based creative exploration, or a deeper experience that adds components of conflict resolution coupled with specific team building elements. 

The best way to connect is to learn, create, and explore together!
