Everett Fine Art are excited to host their first ever art restoration workshops in 2020 at their Studio in Somerset. With over 30 years’ experience in painting and frame restoration, father and son team, Tim and Ben Everett of Everett Fine Art invite you to experience the world of fine art restoration through a 4 day course.
This exclusive ‘hands on’ workshop provides guests with an insight in to the world of fine art restoration. Throughout the informative and relaxed course each guest will be guided through the necessary steps into conserving and restoring a damaged early oil painting, including techniques such as relining, cleaning and retouching.
Whilst restoring a painting guests will also be invited to create their own bespoke ‘period’ frame to take home – by building up layers of gesso, bole and applying ‘compo’ decoration and finishing with metal leaf. Martin will hold an interactive demonstration of the gilding with gold leaf process before inviting each attendee to try the technique.
The Everett Fine Art Workshops offer a fully immersive art restoration experience – fusing together history and traditional art restoration techniques. By creating a relaxing and educational environment the course aims to bring together people with a love or interest in art restoration.
