Wax Works West….A Weekend with Daniella Woolf


What a fabulous weekend I had at Wax Works West.  Sister's Wendy and Judy's Super Delicious Workshop/Studio in Corallitoes,CA about 90 minutes from San Franciso.  Eight Lucky students got to play in waxy pleasure.  The weekend I went the guest artist was Daniella Woolf.  The class was called the minimalist.




The sweet scent of the warm wax and the luscious  brushes was the first welcome delights as you entered the studio (of course they had coffee and pastries waiting for you to indulge)

each guest space and a unbelievable kit waiting for you  to play with…. All you had to bring was yourself and a brown bag lunch!

we used a torch to seal the deal
