Event description
Broaden your artistic horizons and learn some new techniques

About this Event

During this week you will learn how to make your own paints from raw pigments. The techniques of egg tempera (pigment and egg yolk) and gesso making will be demonstrated. You will experiment with egg tempera in contemporary and traditional ways on paper and gessoed wooden panels. Other binders, such as glue and beeswax, will open up further approaches.

With a range of new techniques and materials at your disposal, you will be encouraged to engage with a variety of subject matter. Using the natural surroundings of Findhorn, as well as studio set-ups and your own ideas, you will produce a range of studies and finished paintings that will glow with intense and subtle colour.

All necessary materials will be provided and light lunches and refreshments will be available. Please notify us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.

Note the 10% Early-Bird discount for payments made before the end of February!
