Adults Gesso Workshop

Join Helensburgh Art Hub and artist/creator Alison McIntosh Prentice to explore the life of Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh as well as her techniques in paintings using Gesso.

Adults Gesso Workshop

About Adults Gesso Workshop

We will look into her as an artist and her own individual achievements as well as the things she accomplished with her husband, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

You will have the opportunity to experience the technique hands on after a short demonstration and be able to take their own 'wet' creation home as well as a 'dry' creation which will have been created by Alison in advance but will give you the opportunity to experience colouring a dry gesso piece.

COVID-19 regulations will be followed. Please wear a mask around the Pavilion but it is not needed when the workshop is ongoing. Social distancing will be adhered to and there will be hand sanitiser available. If you have COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and let us know.

All profits from our workshops enable our not for profit organisation to provide art for our community and vulnerable groups. Our workshops are non-refundable but where possible, with 24 hours notice, we will transfer you to another similar workshop.

If you have any enquiries please email helensburgharthub@gmail.com.
