This short workshop explores how to make paint using rocks and earth to colour paper and cloth. Materials gathered from the environment: chalk, carbon and different coloured clays, will be processed in order to make natural pigments and then mixed with gum Arabic, linseed oil and rice starch to turn the hand-ground pigments into paint. Each person will go away with a range of hand coloured paper and cloth samples.
