Event description

Description

In this workshop you will be learning the fundementals of pigment gathering and the production of botanical based inks and mineral based paints. There will be dialogue around how these processes are integrated within our studio practices and how we exist in relationship with the natural world.

We will start day 1 with a guided walk through Stanley Park to point out various plants and materials that can be used for artist materials. (Note: we will be working with pre-harvested materials, and will not be harvesting from within the park)

On day 2 we will be working with plants and minerals that have been harvested from within our landbase. We will learn the processes of botanical ink production, mineral based gouache and oil paints. There will also instruction on ecoprinting papers and fabrics.

On day 3 we will be exploring mark making using our paints and inks from day 2, working in both micro and macro scales. We will also be exploring the use of cyanotypes using found materials to create work.


Each student will leave with a body of work from the weekend, a set of botanical inks in amber bottles, a hand bound book that will be used throughout the workshop, and a set of mineral paints.
