PART 1: Pigment Making  (09:00 - 12:00)

Learn how to turn rock, clay, ash, dust and dirt into pigment. Weather permitting, we will go out to gather our raw material. Then we will extract the pigment. You will be able to take your very own handmade pigment home.

PART 2: Paint Making   (13:00 - 16:00)

Come grind pigment powder into oil paint. You will see just how versatile one batch of pigment can be. In oil painting all colours behave differently. The aim is that you will get to know your paint's idiosyncrasies.

The total amount of R 950 pp for the two part workshop is payable up front. Materials and refreshments are included. Seats are limited.

If you are interested please fill out the registration form below or send me an email.  If you would love to learn pigment or paint making, but would not be able to make it this time, let me know.
