By the end of the course, students will have a basic understanding of how miniature paintings are composed and crafted with traditional methods and materials where possible.

Students will begin by learning to prepare paper by staining and sizing with traditional dyes and methods. The tutor will also demonstrate methods for making watercolour and gouache paints using natural pigments.
