Making Pigments from Earth - Saturday August 11 from 1 - 4 PM


Saturday August 11 from 1 - 4 PM

In this workshop, we will explore various ways to extract color from plant matter in order to make our own dried pigments, inks, paints, and dyes. We will create a variety of natural color palettes full of shapes, textures, and tones as we investigate the basic components of color theory. No experience is needed in order to attend.


All supplies are included in the workshop fee. Handmade books and botanical color blends for simple home use will be available for purchase. Supplies include bamboo cotton rag paper, gum arabic, fresh and dried plant matter, food and flowers scraps, modifiers, paint brushes, paint, small stones, wood palettes, mason jars, vials, blender, informative handouts to keep track of your samples.
