Egg Tempera Workshops

All levels welcome. The luminosity of egg tempera has been practiced from Egyptian times, through its most famous Renaissance period, to today. In this workshop, Sandy speaks to all facets of this fascinating and forgiving painting technique including: the history, ancient and contemporary egg tempera artists, characteristics of powdered pigments, how to mix fresh paints, application techniques, “finishing” an egg tempera painting and old master techniques.

 

There will be a variety of demos and time to complete a small painting. A limited workshop materials list will be provided prior to the first class. The instructor will supply the pigments, eggs, True Gesso panels and other incidentals. Each participant will receive Egg Tempera: Tools, Techniques & Tips, a guide written by this established instructor. Pre-registration and payment insures your placement and the necessary materials for the class.

Felting Workshops

All levels welcome. Working with natural and dyed roving from a variety of wool producing animals, participants will create 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional art pieces using wet and dry felting techniques. Three-dimensional non-woven art pieces are mostly formed with specialized felting needles. The barbed needles are poked down through loose fibers, entangling them until fused and felted. Projects may be intricate or bold, realistic or abstract, wool alone or mixed media. Participants will also be introduced to the history of this 6000 year-old non-woven "fabric". A limited workshop materials list will be provided prior to the first class. The instructor will supply the wool roving, needles, foam pads and other incidentals. Demos and handouts will be provided. Pre-registration and payment insures your placement and the necessary materials for the class.
