HIDDEN FORE-EDGE PAINTING

December 11

EAST ANGLIAN REGION

Martin Frost – Hidden Fore-edge Painting – 11th December 2021

Fore-edge Paintings are secret paintings hidden under the gilded page edges such that they can only be seen when the pages are fanned

Martin Frost is currently the only practitioner offering workshops for this technique, described as a ‘critically endangered’ craft by the British Heritage Crafts Association.

Members will be shown the correct way to, prepare the book and other materials, plan the image, apply the paint and wipe the edge to enable the painting to vanish.

Members need to be able to handle small brushes but need not necessarily be accomplished artists.
