During the workshop, participants will learn the basics of how paint and inks are made. In the process, they will learn the basic properties of natural pigments and binders, where to find them, and sustainable ways to explore this knowledge in their own space. During the course of this workshop, participants will also explore artistic applications for these natural paint/inks.
