We offer two cloth painting workshops during the year. Students can opt to paint on the floor or on the frame in either week.


Student will learn how to stretch a cloth on a paint frame, and to paint their own backdrop working from a old master drawing. Each student will paint their own small cloth based on an old master painting


While scenic artists in the UK have traditionally used paint frames, the majority of cloths are now painted on a wooden paint floor. We’ll paint a small cloth exploring the advantages of working this way and looking at a range of floor painting techniques.
