This Autumn, I’ll be hosting two miniature painting workshops at the SLAB in Montréal.
They will last 4 hours each and a miniature adapted to the workshop’ techniques is included in the cost. The last hour of each workshop will be a open painting and question period. You can bring your own minis for that part.
Be warned, the workshops will be given mainly in French. However, I’ll try to accommodate any English speaker that would like to attend.
Here are the two workshops descriptions, roughly translated from the SLAB web site.
