Ann Belov will teach a one-day workshop on How to prepare a panel with rabbit skin glue and real gesso…. for oil or egg tempera.
Making your panels from scratch may seem time consuming and esoteric, but it is the best way to get exactly the panels you want. By making a batch of panels all at the same time, you can make a year’s worth of panels in a couple days.
This class will cover materials, sources, and methods for making a plain real gesso panel for egg tempera or a linen/canvas covered one for oils.
Those who want to make their own panels during class can pay a supply fee of $15. I will also have a small supply of “starter kits” for sale at the class, to make some panels of your own.
