Over the weekend we had Edward and Lucy who founded the Old Mills Gallery come into the studio to host their “From Pigments to Paints” Workshop.

Participants got to explore the world of naturally derived colours from a historical and local perspective and had the opportunity to try out a selection of traditional and unusual earth and mineral pigments used to create paintings through time. They were able to make different types of water-based paint and other art supplies.

It was amazing to see what colours people created!

🌿♻ ‘Natural’, ‘no waste’ and ‘plastic-free’. If this is how you want to live your creative life, you will find a greener, more natural path with this book. Found and Ground details a more sustainable and fulfilling approach to painting. This new book is the ideal reference book for artists and crafters wishing to move away from plastics (such as those found in acrylic paints), and use natural paints in their place.

If you want to expand your knowledge in this type of craft, we have a workshop coming up in June which features renowned artists Lucy Lee and Edward Campbell. Participants will have the opportunity to try out a selection of traditional and unusual earth and mineral pigments used to create paintings through time. This workshop will take place on the 154th June starting at 10pm.
