During the Easter/ Spring break I have been working on a few different workshops for young people and adults.
I’ve been particularly interested in pigments and using natural materials to make paints. I’ve been exploring this process using old bricks, slate stones, sand stone, granite and different types of soil to see what colours can be picked up and out of these.
By crushing and grinding these down to a powder I’ve seen some wonderful warm and cool earthy tones.
I am now currently working on plant based pigments, such as drying out flowers or vegetables (like beetroot) and crushing them up to make different colours.
