Hosted by Cole Gallery in Edmonds WA

September 28th and 29th 


Join renowned encaustic artist Willow Bader to learn to paint with this thrilling medium. Supplies are included, so you can relax and play. Willow will show you step by step how to create rich, textural artwork using beeswax and resin with an electric griddle as a palette! The two-day workshop will inspire you to experiment fuss-free. Let Willow help you create simple representational paintings full of color and luminous layers of paint.

I offer private drawing and encaustic lessons in my Seattle art studio for $140 a lesson. The lessons are two hours each but if you need something different it can be arranged and will be priced at $70 an hour. Five-lesson packages are also available for $650. 

Please contact me about pricing for group drawing lessons with charcoal and erasure.

I also teach workshops at other venues from time to time. I will post those opportunities on this page.


This is not just tip back a glass of wine and make a drawing that is just like everyone else’s in the room. You will be in a real art studio, making a drawing that is unique to you! No experience is necessary, I will give you one-on-one help as you draw your still life with charcoal and an eraser. Come ready to enjoy yourself and learn something new about drawing. This event lasts an hour and a half.

Arrange a Sip and Draw Class for a birthday party, reunion, team event, or as a fun way to get together with friends.

Sip and Draw is available for a minimum of 5-maximum of 10 persons in Willow’s Studio. At $50 per person. It includes a drawing lesson and materials.

Wine is $10 a glass or bring your own.

Questions?  Please feel free to call me at 206-291-2929 or email me here to plan your Sip and Draw.
