Event description

Description

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND - following the sold out event in May, I am happy to offer another opportunity to teach you how to stretch your own canvas.


Bored of the usual off the shelf canvas? Fed up with having to hunt for the right sized canvas, only to have to compromise? Paid through the nose just to get exactly what you want? Well, stop moaning about it and learn to make your own canvas.

An artist's relationship with a painting begins with the preparation of the canvas. It's size, shape, colour, quality of the materials used, determine the longevity of the painting's conservation. Join me at Cass Art Islington and learn how to stretch, seal and prime your own superior quality canvas.

Suitable for beginners, art students and established artists who want more than a box standard, off the shelf canvas; without spending a small fortune on a bespoke canvas.

Students will complete one canvas ready to use, along with a brief digression into the myriad of acrylic medium and how their use can enhance (or totally mess up!) a painting.

Materials provided will include, stretcher bars, canvas, staple gun, wooden mallet, hammers, brushes and everything needed to play around with different acrylic medium whilst we wait for the layers to dry.

Please bring protective clothing and a sense of humour.
