By popular request, Dorieke Schreurs is for the first time also offering a masterclass on the traditional preparation of a background and the making of a traditional Gesso substrate.
In this masterclass you will learn everything about different surfaces on which you can paint. You will get started with stretching a small canvas. Then traditional (animal) glue is made to seal the canvas. While this dries we will continue with the traditional recipe of a Gesso base. We then place this gesso surface on the stretched and pre-glued canvas.
You will go home with a traditionally prepared canvas, ready to paint on and with the knowledge to continue preparing your own surfaces at home.
*Due to the material costs (wood, cloth, glue, chalk) this masterclass is slightly more expensive than other workshops and masterclasses.
