About the Course

Something a bit different for artist enthusiasts that also love the great outdoors!

Expand your creative practice by learning how to identify, source and process materials from nature with local artist, Thomas Keyes. From lichen based pigments to wild binders and canvases this course is an introduction to the techniques of a foraging artist.

After a walk in the woods to identify materials we will go through a series of processes both traditional and contemporary that can be easily repeated at home to turn your foraged collection into high quality art materials.

Participants are welcome to work on a final piece or just to experiment in a relaxing atmosphere. A piece of roe deer parchment will be supplied to work on.

No experience necessary, bring suitable clothing to spend some time outdoors. This will be a fun, friendly experience in a beautiful, inspiring part of the world. Residential packages are available.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
