Forage Your Own Paint

Pre-registration required. Register here

Ever wanted to make your very own paint? It isn’t that scary! 

Humans have been combining pigments and binders for millennia and in this workshop, we will, too. We’ll start with the basic tools and procedures, then try out a few different recipes for paint-making using earth pigments. 

Feel free to bring your own found materials to transform into paint: clays, sea shells, even broken flower pots all make great pigments! 

When foraging for pigments, make sure to follow Leave No Trace principles and only forage where you have permission to do so. 

Facilitated by Chad Brown, Center for Creativity Assistant. This program will be held in person at the Center for Creativity Workshop, on the lower level of the University Store on Fifth.

Thursday, July 29 at 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
