REGISTER for Natural Pigments with Catherine Shapiro Sorry, FULL!
Registration/cancellation closes May 12 on this class
Local artist and gardener Catherine Shapiro has been growing and researching pigments for making her own paints for several years as part of her creative practice. The morning is primarily an introduction and overview of Catherine’s samples and discoveries. The afternoon is studio time to process a pigment and explore egg tempera, oil-based and watercolour pigments on paper, as well as soy-based paints for fabric. Pigments to be explored include cochineal, indigo, turmeric, blackberry, soil and other mineral pigments. A great introduction to set you on your own track for future explorations and personal studio work. Bring a lunch, notebook and dress for being outdoors under cover.
Please note: Due to the labour and cost intensive work required of Catherine to prepare for this class, registration and cancellation closes on May 12
Includes all materials.
