Painters Workshop

Focusing on a single trade, we provide a detailed exploration of Elizabethan art and it’s craft practices. Painters were skilled craftsmen whose work touched almost every corner of Elizabethan life, from cutting edge scientific discovery, and religious devotions to Inn signs in remote villages. Visitors will be invited to explore a world of colour and symbolism as well as talk about poisons and trade, view the world through a camera obscure or try their hand at grinding pigments to make paint.
