Description

Lecture by Kei Saito

※This workshop is only available in Japanese. Thank you for your understanding. 
Washi-paper and canvas are often used as substrates for painting. Have you ever concern about the substrates you usually paint on?
Conditions of the ground may influence the finish of paintings. Primed canvases are easily find at stores, however this time, we would like to offer an opportunity to make your own gesso ground.
In the workshop, we are going to make “semi-oil-based gesso ground” used since ancient times in Europe. This type of gesso is suitable for both oil and tempera painting, which is the reason why it has been used under many masterpieces. Plaster powder is dissolved in animal glue with egg and oil added to make the traditional gesso, and both traditional and current recipes will be shared.
We hope that many of you will be able to join us.
