Learn The Ancient Art of Egg Tempera Painting with Bethany

Saturday 9th July 2022
10am - 4pm
The Liss Triangle Centre
Explore the ancient technique of egg tempera painting. Participants will learn how to make paints from pigment and egg yolk to use in the session. They will create their own egg tempera paintings on gesso board, using the traditional painting techniques of cross hatching and glazing that were applied by the old masters. This workshop is suitable for beginners and more advanced learners new to egg tempera.

Egg tempera dates back to the 1st century AD, it was used in early Christian and Byzantine icon painting and was popular during the early Renaissance period. Used by artists such as Fra Angelico, Botticelli and Mantegna, it was the primary method of painting until around 1500. Today, egg tempera is becoming increasingly appreciated for its remarkable qualities of luminosity and durability.
