Canal Art Workshop

  • 75 British pounds
  • Knaresborough

Learn how to paint beautiful flowers in the traditional canal art style with Fred Worthington - signwriter and canal artist - in a step-by-step guide to creating a beautiful canvas. Fred will start the day with a brief history of this old tradition which will be followed by a morning of practical work creating your design on paper before transferring your design to your canvas. Once you have a rough guide, you will then start applying your paint in layers. In the afternoon you will create details including petals and other flourishes which will leave you with a beautiful painting for you to take home and proudly show off. You don't need a canal boat to appreciate and recreate this colourful folk art style, so why not come along and learn a new skill. Discover everything you need to know about the materials required and the techniques needed to carry on painting at home. All paints, brushes and materials are included. It is advised to wear old clothing but gloves and plastic aprons are available.
