In this workshop students will discover the origin, process and transformative material uses of natural earth pigments (mineral and oxide clay) and natural dyes. Participants will study colorants from an historical lens and experiment with applications of earth pigments and natural dyes and their uses in alternative forms such as paint, watercolor/gouache, lake pigments and pastels. Open to all skill levels.
