I am thrilled to be partnering with Amanda Brazier for this unique experience to forage and create pigments here on the South Cumberland Plateau.

Class Description

In this one-day workshop, we will explore ancient ways of creating with earth pigments. We will first discuss the historical significance of natural pigments in art and culture. Then, I will give some background on colorful local shales and clays and soils that I have gathered. We will then collect our own earth colors on the farm and surrounding property. After lunch, we’ll process the rocks and clays into more refined pigments, then mix the pigments with a binder to make watercolor paints. We’ll finish the day painting with these beautiful earth colors.
