This is a 2 day workshop on how to create an archival "Old Masters" quality canvas from scratch using linen, rabbit skin glue, and oil primer. On day one we will cover how to cut your linen, stretch it onto the stretcher bars, and coat it in rabbit skin glue. On day two, we will cover oil priming, all the while discussing the benefits of using this technique and how it affects your painting. Materials will be provided.
