July  19th Natural Dyeing
Spend the day learning the basics of dyeing using plant material gathered from your home and local environment. We will be using a bundling technique with boiling and steaming which prints the actual plants onto the fabric, giving excellent detail.

August 16th  Making Simple Paint and a Tape Bound Book
Begin the day by learning to make two simple paints from milk, flour, sugar and natural pigments. Then use them to paint a large sheet of watercolour paper on one side. While this is drying make a small sample tape bound book in preparation for tearing your painting into smaller pieces to make a one of a kind artist’s book which you will work back into using encaustic techniques.

Glue Paint & Milk Paint

September 20th Starch Paste
Learn how to create small artworks using flour and milk. We will create areas of crackle finish and then paint over them with handmade paint then finish with ink.

October 18th  Playing with Egg
We will look at many different ways of using egg as an art material, from traditional egg tempera to stenciling, stamping and breakdown printing.. This one of my favourite mediums to work with as it is so versatile. Also learn to make traditional gesso
