Date: Saturday 7th July 2018
Silverpoint or Metalpoint is an exquisite technique, first employed by renaissance artists - using real silver and other metals to make images. Drawing on specially prepared surfaces, delicate and responsive results can be achieved, with a soft sheen and permanent finish.
The drawings can then be tinted with water colours, inks or gouache.
During this workshop with Zoe Eaton, prepare a variety of surfaces and grounds, explore the use of tools and metals, and experiment with mark making techniques.
During the afternoon we will work on a final drawing on a gesso panel, in a subject of your choice.
