WORKSHOP: Egg Tempera Painting Course with James Lynch
Monday 30 September – Tuesday 1 October, 10-4pm Bookings
As part of our focus on tempera, and to coincide with The Big Draw, exhibiting artist and paraglider James Lynch will run a practical painting course in the galleries at Messums Wiltshire. It will involve cooking gesso, preparing a panel, making egg tempera paint and experimenting with this ancient medium.
James Lynch grew up in Wiltshire and lives in Somerset. Since his first sell-out exhibition in the West Country in the 1980s he has won awards, exhibited regularly in London and received many commissions from private clients and corporations. All his egg tempera paintings are made using pure ground pigments and egg yolks from his own hens. He makes the glue and gesso from the raw ingredients.
This one-day course includes all tuition, materials and lunch.
Spaces are limited to please book early to avoid disappointment.
