As many of my students know I stopped using sable brushes long ago. I began to question how the sable hair was acquired and never received a satisfactory answer. I became uncomfortable with the product. I found the new synthetic watercolor brushes to handle beautifully so I happily stopped purchasing any animal hair brushes of any sort.
Below is a great link about he fur trade and Kolinsky Sable brushes….why they are getting hard to find and why we should consider alternative brushes that give a wonderful effect without effecting wildlife. :O)
The next six week session begins in the first week of November. For details see the “Classes” section at the top of the web page. The Saturday session will be 5 weeks and priced accordingly.
