Silverpoint @ The Rare Art & Forgotten Trades

Saturday April 6, 2024 10am – 4pm

Join fine artist Lisa Nolan for a beginner friendly workshop on drawing in silverpoint.

Silverpoint is a traditional form of durable drawing that was used by masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael during the Renaissance, and is still used today. It requires the drawing surface to be prepared to receive the drawing, then using a silver stylus, building up a beautiful drawing that will last.

This full-day workshop is a great introduction to drawing with silver where you will learn techniques regarding the preparation of the drawing surface, the tools you can draw with, how to create tone in your drawing, and finally how to measure, prepare and mount your drawing.

At the end of the day, you will take your work of art home with you.
