Private Workshops

One-on-One Private Workshops


Sometimes you just want the one-on-one experience.

One-on-one private workshops allow you to focus extensively on the images you want to create using your photography and the encaustic process. We will design the workshop together focusing on where you are in your creative process and where you’d like to go. Workshops can be designed to focus solely on the studio or incorporate a chance to shoot, edit, and then bring those images to the studio.

I get it. You want to see the technique in action, first-hand, and without the distraction of a larger workshop. Wherever you are in your process, come and learn in a private one-on-one workshop. Whether it be two, three, or five days we will have plenty of time for hands-on and personal exploration. You’ll be encouraged to take risks and let go of preconceived ideas. So no matter if you are just learning photography or want to deepen a regular creative practice, a private workshop will fuel your imagination and artistic direction.




Dates: call 651-312-0113 or email for available dates

Location: St. Paul, MN
Cost: $395 day (includes materials fee)

If traveling outside of the Twin Cities Metropolitan area to visit your studio the cost is $595 per day + travel expenses.


Can I just do a one-day workshop?
Yes, you certainly can. I would advise that you already have a working knowledge of photo encaustic if you only want to do a one day workshop. You really need two or more days to learn the basics if you are starting from scratch.

Can two of us come for a private workshop?
Yes, there will be a slight daily rate increase in the price for additional participants – with a maximum of four.

Do you provide all the materials?
Yes, I will provide all of the materials. This price includes a material fee of $25 per day to cover the cost of substrates, printing, and materials. All you need to bring is a flash drive with your images.



At first I was a little anxious about the whole encaustic process because I didn’t quite know what to expect - but I didn’t need to be. In a really short time my eyes have been opened to a world of new creative possibilities for my photographs. It felt like I was ‘breaking the rules’ but I‘m so happy with my images and very proud to display them.

Clare is knowledgeable, encouraging and talented instructor. Open to questions (I had many), she even gently posed some important ones back to me about my art, goals and dreams. I left her workshop a more confident artist and person. I look forward to taking more classes with her.

Before taking Clare’s class I had no idea about the process, all I knew was I loved the results. Since taking the class I now have an exciting new way to present my photography and make it really stand out.
