Stacks Image 21788

Event description

Elisabeth Viguie-Culshaw is a master stencilling artist with 25 years of experience in Glasgow Style and Art Nouveau designs.

This morning workshop will be a masterclass for tutors, class leaders and teachers in some of the techniques used to produce many of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's most memorable interiors. A unique opportunity to 'learn from the best' and pass on expert skills to your students.

The workshop will start by looking at Mackintosh stencil designs and isolating elements for personal design. Organising stencilling classes with groups of all ages will be covered. The practical techniques will be taught alongside ideas of how to integrate the work with an understanding of heritage. Participants will cut and create a simple but effective stencil, learning the skills that can then be used in their own settings.

This class is suitable for all levels, both beginners or those with experience in stencilling.

To provide the best experience for participants only 10 places are available and so we advise early booking.

Sunday 26th Feb 2017
9.45am - 12.30pm

A full one day, in depth, public stencilling workshop is also available.

Venue: 78 Derngate

Further details

Visitors to Glasgow's House for an Art Lover will be familiar with Elisabeth's stunning interpretation of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's designs realised in 1996. In the same year a major retrospective Charles Rennie Mackintosh exhibition featured her recreation of the 78 Derngate 1916 stencil scheme. More recently she has worked at The Hunterian's Mackintosh House ( the reconstructed interiors of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's own home ) and also the George Walton Scottish house "Ault Wharrie". She lives in Glasgow with her husband and runs "The Lansdowne House of Stencils".

Elisabeth has taught hundreds of people her special techniques of stencilling at regular workshops in and around Glasgow.

We are delighted to host her for the first time in England at 78 Derngate and this will be a unique opportunity to learn this highly creative and enjoyable art from a master practitioner.
