Master Class in CWM / Oil with artist FIDELMA O’NEILL. Learn to use cold wax painting to add luminosity, texture and depth to your work.

Second date added – Sunday 5 March


Join Fidelma O’Neill for an all – day experience working with cold wax medium & oils.

This workshop is for artists who want to learn a new technique in painting, explore cold wax medium and oils, and deepen the knowledge in creating texture and layers in this medium. The technique enables to experiment, build up new depths & vibrant surface, add and mix colour. It’s a playful way of working more intuitively and abstract, focusing on technical mastery and individual expression.
