Bonadsmålning Workshop with Katy Alston

Coalport China Museum

Join us at Coalport China Museum to try your hand at Swedish-style egg tempera painting, also known as Bonadsmålning, and discover a world of pigments, folk art and stories.

Led by artist and illustrator Katy Alston, you'll mull pigment, make your own egg tempera paint, learn about the 'old painters' and create a Swedish-style folk art painting or modern version of your choice using paper, card or canvas prepared with acrylic gesso.

No experience necessary! This workshop is a perfect introduction to this traditional medium, which you can see in simple and stylised Bonadsmålning designs on Caughley porcelain.
