The Mixed Technique of Egg Tempera and Oil

The Holburne Museum
Great Pulteney Street
Weekend workshop at The Holburne Museum


£100 (includes admission to exhibition on 3 & 4 June and FREE ticket to the Evening Lecture on 2 June)


Discover the traditional painting techniques used by Flemish artists of the 15th  and early 16th  centuries, who brought together egg tempera and oil, integrating the virtues of each into their paintings. Students will be guided through the various stage of transferring the design onto a traditional gesso panel*, and creating a monochrome, tonal composition, in egg tempera. On completion of the underpainting, colours are applied in oil using a traditional glazing medium. Participants will be instructed in the traditional method of egg tempera painting, including learning how to make egg tempera paint, as well as instructions in making oil paint.

This workshop is applicable for students of all levels of experience, from beginners to professional artists. Pigments and mediums are all provided.
Students need to provide: Hog Hair brushes (Filbert shape), numbers 2 – 5; Pointed Kolinsky sable brushes, numbers 0 – 5.

* Additional £20 charge payable to tutor on day for traditional gesso panels on which to paint.
