Back to workshops
Silverpoint, or more broadly metalpoint, is an ancient medium that reached its peak in the Renaissance
and fell from favour once graphite was introduced.
It has many advantages over pencil; can be worked in exquisite detail,
doesn't smudge and is completely permanent, inert and fade-proof.
We will explore and exploit metalpoint and learn how to prepare the best surface/supports.
