Inspired by The Vanity of Small Differences and the sumptuous treasures in The Beaney collection, this workshop will focus on the acquisition of wealth as you create your own ornate paintings.
Youwill be shown some basic acrylic painting techniques applied to wooden panels, with the opportunity to experiment with a simple gilding process which will embellish your artworks with gold leaf!
Whether you take your inspiration from the ornate Egyptian treasures or Roman riches, this workshop will give you the chance to create your own opulent artworks to take home.
