Thursdays 08.12 and 15.12; 16:30‒19:30
The instructor is the artist and painting restorer Malle-Reet Heidelberg.
The course will be conducted in Estonian, but English translation can be provided.
During the two-part course, participants will learn to paint with egg tempera, which is one of the oldest painting techniques. The pigments are mixed together with a binder, based on various recipes, which might include egg and a small amount of white wine or beer. A similar technique was used for many of the oldest panel paintings and icons. The course will also offer a brief overview of the fascinating world of colour preparation and artworks will be painted on wooden bases which have been hand-primed with a glue and chalk mixture.
