Knowing how to stretch a canvas is a great skill for any artist, it opens up possibilities within your art practise and how you create. It gives you the choice to work on unstretched canvas and stretch it over a frame at a later date, more options in the size of canvas and the types of materials you can work on (raw, pre primed, canvas or linen) and It provides an economical way to work on high quality surfaces. You will also have the skill to take a canvas off a frame if a stretcher ends up getting damaged or you want to travel with your work carefully rolled up and off the frame.

We will be learning how to stretch a canvas using light weight stretcher bars. We will learn about the subtle differences in canvas looking at raw v’s pre primed and look at the different types of primers and gesso that can be used to produce different surfaces and effects. You will leave the workshop with 2 medium sized canvases that you have made yourself ready to take home and create. This class is open to beginners or people that need a reminder/ refresher in stretching.

Bring: A staple gun and canvas pliers if you have them. I will have a few extra if needed, please let me know.
