FIGONE is holding painting workshops for 2, 4, 5, 7 or 9 days. Dozens of miniature painters come together for the pleasure for becoming better, with advice from experienced painters and sculptors.

Where ?

Workshops are located in comfortable facilities in the town of Montelimar (1h20 from Lyon and 2 hours from Marseille by car). Accommodation could be in tents or in “marabout”, 5km away of the training in the countryside ,Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided. We will encourage carpooling from major cities in France (Lyon, Paris, Marseilles, Toulouse, Nantes ...).

When ?

Workshops run from Saturday July 3rd to Sunday July 11th 2010. The welcoming beer will be on Friday the 2nd on Quentin's family farm. Departures will be possible until the day of Monday the 12th. Workshops are chosen à la carte over 2, 4, 5, 7 or 9 days.

Who ?

A few great names from our hobby will be hosting the workshops

Jacques Alexandre Gillois (Ilyad Games, Helldorado…)
Jérémie Bonamant Teboul (Figone, Artefactory, Andréa Miniatures, Kraken Editions…)
Laurent Mas Exposito (aérographe, table top…)
Mohammed Ait Mehdi (Rackham, Eden, sculpture, peinture)
Alfonso Giraldes (Andrea Miniatures, Knight Models…)
Jose Manuel Palomares (Andrea Miniatures, Knight Models…)
Allan Carrasco (Ilyad Games, Kraken Editions, Smart Max…)
Alex Cortina (Alexandro models)
Carles Vaquero (La meridiana, Hydrafactory…)
and many other “Figoprofs” as the number of participants increase…

What ?

The à la carte workshops will be made up of 8 to 12 participants. These are aimed at the beginners just as much as the veterans, from underage (albeit with parental consent) to older participants. Some workshops will be generalized on topics such as painting or sculpting, while others will be more specific (airbrushing, busts, terrain, basing, etc...). Lectures about the concepts and general principles along with alternating collective demonstrations and individual tutoring will make these workshops a rather intense learning period. Moreover, purely Seminars on theoretical matters (lighting, color, anatomy...) will be offered in the evenings. Complete formation assured!

For those who do not speak French and who were wondering if it would be a big problem if they were planning to go to figostock?

- There will be 50% of non-French speaking people. In fact, there will no problem for them because the aim is to create a multi linguage class!!
- A lot of persons in each group speak English and a lot of Italian and Spanish people will be there.

For example, at the moment 2 English guys sent their subscription, plus one from Sweden. And no of them speak French.
