About the Course

One day creative workshop at the Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle.

Learn how to create your own natural paints!

The earth is the source of the pigments used in the great paintings of the past: extracting pigments and making them into paint was a part of any artist's practice. This workshop will introduce you to this traditional skill, transforming rocks (a local stone and a semi-precious rock such as Chrysocolla) and plants (Persian berry or Madder) into beautiful watercolour, tempera and oil paint.

This course will run from 10am to 4pm.

Students attending the course should comfortable clothes, including closed toe shoes. Suitable for ages 16 +

The Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle has been offering hands on experience and training since 2013. See our website to browse the wide range of taster days, short courses and demonstrations in craft, conservation and traditional building skills.
