Spring 2023 Cracked Linen Workshops

Who: Instructor Artist Roberta Ahrens What: Hands on workshop working with Handmade Cracked Linen applications. Where: Cavanaugh Center Art Room 426 8th St. Petaluma, California (corner of G & 8th) When: Saturdays, 9:30 – 4:30pm go to:

You will learn the steps for creating a one of a kind lasting piece of art, with handmade Cracked Linen. This is an exploration of digital imagery, drawing, painting, sculpting and gilding with Cracked Linen plaster on fiber medium.

You will be provided with material to use, each piece will be sized to create a finished piece. You will create 1-2 finished pieces... a  journal, a small lidded box, and/or a framable piece of art. 

We will paint, sketch, and glue images I provide, or you can bring your own. If you choose to bring your own images, make sure they are copied on thin plain copy paper which works better to allow the cracked linen to show through. Black and White or color are fine.  Interesting florals, birds, architectural details etc... use your imagination    ( View images for scale )


Bring an apron and thin latex or vinyl protective gloves if you want.

Gold and Silver leaf is +$8  and kits of Cracked Linen to take home will be available for $40.  Blank writing journals can be purchased for $10. ​​


We will break for lunch at noon, and I will provide a list of cute cafes in the area once you register. Or you can bring your own lunch.
