The Big Green Draw: Natural Pigment Paint

The Big Green Draw: Natural Pigment Paint


Monday 26 October 2020 / 10.30am

Education Centre

From her home in Oxford, fine artist Celia Wilson captures the colours of Canterbury in way that could not be more down to earth. She creates paint using pigments she gathers from the local landscape, both as a craft process in its own right and also as a part of her own art practice.

Celia says "I investigated paint making as done by Europeans and New Zealand Māori before paint manufacturing became an industrialised process."

In this two hour  workshop Celia will guide you in the process of making your own natural paint.

Free, but places limited to 18. Bookings essential.
Bring your own jar to take your paint home in.
