Workshop: Stretching and preparing a canvas for painting

Dates:

Saturdays

December 29, 2018

January 5, 2019

Students will make their own stretcher bars and then stretch linen canvas. Rabbit skin glue and lead white primer are applied to the canvas to prepare for painting.

This technique was practiced by the Old Masters and results in a superior product than the factory made pre stretched canvases.
